Author John Locke just made an interesting comment to my Cooking the Books – The New York Times and Nook Ebook Bestsellers post:
All six of my eBooks are among the Amazon/Kindle top 100, including #2 (Saving Rachel), #10 (Lethal People) and #14 (Wish List). But I don’t exist on the NYT or Nook lists, because they don’t recognize self-published authors. The big boys and girls charge $9.99 and more for their eBooks. Since I can sell mine for 99 cents and make a profit, the playing field is no longer slanted against me or the consumer. I don’t have to prove my books are as good as the New York Times Best Selling Authors–they have to prove their books are 10 times better than mine!
