Weird, Karen.  Did you try another browser?  I'm using Firefox, and it seems to be working okay for the most part.

I didn't think of the browser - I'll try Firefox and see if that helps.  Keep your fingers crossed!!!  Thanks.   :)

Well done, HP. I bought two of your books. One several months ago, and one a couple days ago. (Both from the same series.)

Thanks so much, Craig! I hope you enjoy them!!!

It's a cause for celebration for any book to hit 1000/month, no matter the price. It's even more exciting to me that some on that list are priced at $2.99or higherand therefore have the healthy 70% royalty per copy.

Anyway, the beauty of it all is that this year, many more books will reach these consistent sales numbers. May 2011 be Indie Paradise. :D

Put me down for gold (over 5k). :) And both Game for Love and Candy Store sold over a thousand in Dec. :) I'd love an asterisk too!

Hi, my novel Remix sold 4,278 copies in December, mostly in the UK where it's spent 82 days in the Kindle top 100 chart.

I've only published one book so far (am looking forward to finishing the WIP and getting it out there).

I found this post through Konrath's blog - the only one I follow.
I could not be more impressed by the #'s shown here. 
I immediately joined KindleBoards so I can follow the advice of the master sellers out there.
I can only hope to reach these #'s (and soon).

Welcome to Kindleboards, Chris!  I'm so glad you've joined us.  :)

There's a sticky note at the top of the Writer's Cafe that tells you how to get your book in your signature line.  ;D

These numbers are certainly great and are wonderful targets to aspire to.

After 3 months, I sold 122 copies of 2 books in December. So, I think that puts me at the Lint level. ;) Next goal, bronze!

If someone has a few free minutes, can you update this list to include everyone who chimed in? I'd like to post an updated list on my blog, but I'm on a deadline and doing enough messing around on the net.  ::)

I'm also sure these other names who should be included.

Aaron Patterson*
Zoe Winters*
James Swain
Paul Levine
Robert W. Walker
Karen McQuestion*
Scott Nicholson*
Simon Wood
Blake Crouch

Hey Derek! Nice to see you. I'm right there with you on the Lint Level -- even lintier -- but what I really love are the stories about how a lot of these authors started out just like us, with just a handful of sales per month, and just kept chugging away... My sales are rising bit by bit, and I know yours are too. May we soon both join the club!

I'm creating a new list with all the authors added here. The list will include sales numbers, primary genre, # Kindle books available, etc. I should have it up soon.
