Okay. I realize that i'm probably a little insane. But we're all a little crazy, right? right.
I realized today that Amazon has a freaking rankings for paperback sales on books. And I'm sure I should have realized that like 100 years ago, but what can I say... sometimes I'm a little slow. ha!
Anyway, I looked up the top 100 paperbacks on Amazon and I don't think (cause then again i don't know every single self published author in the world) that a single one of them is a self published author.
And that got me thinking (always dangerous)...
Has a self published author's paperback EVER been in amazon's top 100 paperback sales?!?!
Well I don't have a freaking clue, so I thought that it would be REALLY fun to see how close we can get! HAHAHAHAHA
I hope you know that I am giggling while I write this. Because half of me thinks that it isn't possible to get into that list for paperbacks- since they are all really well known, traditionally published authors with HUGE followings and fan bases...
But then the other half of me thinks- well, it IS all based on online sales. It's not like these paperback rankings are from book stores and stuff. So why can't a self published author get on that list?!
Now before you think that this is some sort of greedy ass ploy- I'll have you know that I literally make like, I don't know, A dollar and some change on each paperback I sell through Amazon. So it's not about the money.
But then again, I don't do any of this for the money.
I just thought it would be FUN!
Fun to see if we could get on that list! HA! At least it would be fun to try- and you can win shit just for trying.
Plus, how can you NOT want this gorgeous cover (thank you michelle warren) in your hot little hands?!?! I still want wallpaper of it made. LOL
