Hi everyone. I've been publishing for about a year, but I'm a slow writer and still have lots to learn. Happy to be here on Kboards though.  ;D

Hi *waves*

My name is Karletta and I've got four eBooks in the Kindle store.
I'm new to Kboards and am looking forward to meeting some of you here.

I mainly write non fiction. I am working on a second eBook in my Autism memoir series.

Occasionally I write short stories and am lucky enough to have one published in The Demons of Buttecrack County.
I plan on releasing some short stories under a pen name.

I love The Self Publishing Podcast and have been learning about self publishing since late 2016.

Hi All,

This site was recommended to me by a fellow-writer and new friend. I've already learned so much even though I've been a part-time writer for several years.

 :D

Writing keeps me sane.

Hello, everyone! I'm Coco Mingolelli, author of Peccatum in Carne: Sins of the Flesh. It's my first published book, both formats. The book is part of a trilogy, called The Three Sins of Mallory Moore.

This is my first post, to say hi, and to unlock signature features.

Have a great day!

Hi everyone!  I'm Grant Cravens, and I just published my first book, The Secrets of the Kraken, to Amazon.  I'm currently working on revising book two, and planning out books three and four.  I mainly write science fiction, but I have another series sketched out that's more urban fantasy.

I lurk a lot, but I'm trying to get better!

Has the author page driven sales?  I am new to the book world. i released chapter 1 of my book The Plugs Lawyer for .99cents



Update! Authors can now add themselves to our KB Authors page, regardless of your current sales level.

Go to http://kboards.com/authors to see a list of KB authors, sorted by estimated sales.



Near the top, there's a link for you to add your own sales data. Each author can only add/edit his own sales data.



For those of you who use pen names, or who have author names different from your KB names, there is a place for you to list up to five of those.

Please give it a go and let me know your feedback. Thanks!


**************************
Help!

Over the years, we've had several fascinating threads showing KB authors who have reached sales milestones (e.g. this outdated list of authors selling 50,000 books or more, and Hugh's thread about authors paying the bills through their book sales, to name just a couple.

We would like to create an official KB list of best-selling authors, which lists KB authors based on sales milestones. This would be something we would maintain in this forum, and post periodically in our blog. I expect it could get a fair bit of publicity if it's done right.

I envision this as a listing of authors who have reached the various sales levels of:
10,000
50,000
100,000
500,000
1,000,000

Some questions, though...

1. How would we make this a reliable (i.e. verifiable) source of info? Ask for screenshots of Amazon KDP sales data?

2. How to handle factoring in sales from BN, Kobo, Smashwords, Apple, etc? Or should it be based just on Kindle sales?

3. Indie (self--pub) only? Indie and small-pub? Or any authors of e-books, whether they're indie, small-pub or big-pub?

4. Include freebies or only paid books in the milestone thresholds?

5. Any other thoughts/ideas? Is this an achievable idea?

Hey Folks! I'm new - my pen name I'll be publishing under is Indy Pilott - I'm actually traditionally published (a handful of UF series with the big 5) but I really want to give self publishing a go so here I am! I'll be setting up all my account 'stuff' (photo, books, etc) over the next few days but I've already been combing through the threads- Man you all have fantastic covers!

I began writing in April 2016 but I am a horrid procrastinator. I just published my first book on August 31st and I have this forum to thanks many helpful tips. In a month, I start my next book in the series. Let's Do This!

Published a book. Felt good. Now I want to go out and publish another.

Hey everyone, I'm Leo. I published my first book, Legion, on Kindle in July 2013 and I now have seven books out. Like others, I was recommended to this board by an old regular, Glynn Stewart. Nice to meet everyone!
