Okay, here's the full table in an image. I'll convert it to text as soon as I figure out how to auto-convert Excel to HTML.

If I made a mistake with any of your information, please let me know. If something's blank, I don't know the information. If you provide it I'll add it.

And the Geek of the Day award goes to ... Derek! Nicely done!

To help fill out the table, I have no previous print deal.

The same is true for Lexi I know as we're internet pals. She should have an asterisk too, given she only has one book.

Thanks, you two.

Derek, can I use the jpg for my blog (with a link to you)?

Also, I only have 19 self pubbed titles on Kindle, which is the sales I'm reporting. And I'm pretty sure Amanda hit 100,000, and HP hit 20,000.

Hey Derek, Remix isn't fantasy - it's commercial fiction with elements of crime and romance.

(Ah, the penalties of doing a chart.)

Congratulations to all these authors! I'm still working on getting into the 100 a month club!  :D But your success -- and the breadth of it, with so many authors reaching (and blowing past) the 1000 milestone is very encouraging! Keep up the great work!

Thanks to the craziness that is PubIt's accounting, I am pleased to report that I actually sold more than 5000 copies last month... unless PubIt decides to take some of the newly added books back, anyway.

Joe, sure you can use the jpg!

I've made some corrections already. If more corrections appear, I'll update it again later tonight using the same URL for the image:

Derek,
I don't have 8 Kindle titles available. I only have 4 :-).

Derek, fwiw, I had over 1,000 sales for my only book - a paranormal romance.

Derek, this is great, thanks. A couple of corrections to my information. :)
My name is Bella Andre (rather than Bell Andre) & I only have 6 kindle titles that I'm e-pubbing myself. The rest (the other 8) are NY pubbed books. Which also answers the question of previously NY pubbed - yes, I still am - doing both indie e-pubbing and contracted books concurrently. My total for just my 6 e-pubbed books was over 5k this month, with two of my books over 1k each. I won't know how my NY books did for 6-12 months.

A friend of mine would should be on the list, too, if you don't mind: Tina Folsom. She was way over 5k. She's paranormal and romance. And she's never been NY pubbed.

Thanks again. It's a fun table to be on. Great company!
:) Bella

I've updated the list at the top.  Early on I was doing "categories" - Platnium, gold, silver, and people objected so I went to a straight list.

Hi Derek - What a lot of work, and what a nice job. I don't know if it makes a bit of difference, but one of my 3 books is a mystery and the other two are western historical romances. I doubt straight westerns would have a chance of selling as well as romances.

Sorry Derek - I sold over 5000 in December. (I mean, I'm not sorry - but it's wrong on the table.)

Thanks for adding me. I had a real stellar December 2010 - I sold more than 9,000 books during that month (Kindle & Nook combined). I guess the paranormal romance genre isn't dead yet.

Derek, thanks for doing such a fantastic list! Just a minor point: I write romantic comedy and comedy mysteries - don't know if you can amend that?

Many thanks!  ;D

Thank you both, Robin and Derek, for the lists -

Derek - for Karen Cantwell: 3893 for both titles

Robin - I'd love an asterisk if you're updating.  Thanks!
