From Digital Book World:
For the first time ever, a self-published title has hit No. 1 on the Digital Book World Ebook Best-Seller list, occupying a position once held by Fifty Shades of Grey, Gone Girl and other mega best-selling titles.
The book, Wait for You, is authored and published by Jennifer L. Armentrout under the pen name J. Lynn, which she calls her “alter-ego.” Armentrout has published books with Hyperion, Harlequin and several others in addition to self-publishing; that is, she’s a hybrid author.
Wait for You went on sale Feb. 26 and immediately started inching up the best-seller list. While this week is the first time it’s in our top-25, it barely missed at No. 27 last week and was No. 9 on the $0.00 to $2.99 list. Propelling it to the No. 1 spot was a price promotion executed by Armentrout and without the aid of a retailer promotion like a Kindle Daily Deal. The book was $0.99 for three days last week. It’s now selling for $2.99.
