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

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 Over the years, we've had several fascinating threads showing KB authors who have reached sales milestones (e.g. this outdated list of authors selling 50,000 books or more, and Hugh's thread about authors paying the bills through their book sales, to name just a couple.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

    Thank you for creating this! I'm certain this will come in handy for many authors. I added my name to the list.  ;D

    Hi just found this forum- really good read

    After a few years of writing short comedy sketches for friends i reluctantly put a few of them into an ebook a few months ago, then proceeded to forget
    about it!
    Usual stuff.. busy with everyday life, a bit embarrassed about promoting it etc but after a few compliments I decided to revisit it again.

    Anyway i write uk based cynical, surreal, satirical comedy based upon the absurdity of our established norms within the modern world

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Oh-Times-Customs-Bill-Lee-ebook/dp/B07BN5KLY3/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1534092847&sr=8-1&keywords=bill+lee+oh+the+times

    looking forward to reading the forum and perhaps discovering a few new authors I may appreciate

    good idea. To give us newbies a chance to catch up could i suggest the following catergories:

    1. Fastest selling book  (Ie new authors who are making a splash)
    2. Most sales per individual book (which you would hope would reflect quality not just quantity of output)

    Hello!


    I just published my first book and am excited about this new journey. I write horror, sci-fi, urban fantasy, paranormal romance, steamfunk, epic fantasy, and YA with a focus on African American folklore, culture and characters.

    I hope to learn all I can from you all.

    Hi guys!
    I just published my first Kindle book and I'm so excited! Hope readers will like it as I tried to make it super useful and practical for those who struggle from the lack of self-confidence.
    I'm glad to be here, such a nice place for readers and writers  :)

    It is really a wonderful idea. Those sales numbers can really give a headache psychologically.

    Hi everyone. Just discovered this forum and joined. Working on a big novel about two men growing up in Australia between 1900 and 1930. But I did get momentarily sidetracked and wrote an erotic romance novel, the first of three planned. I've uploaded to Amazon. Paperback or Kindle. It will be interesting to see what happens. Cheers.

    PS Still trying to work out how to put the proper sized image on here. Hopefully will fix soon.

    I'm new here and followed your recommendation to add myself to the KB Authors page. Thank you. However, I noticed at the top of the list a few authors who estimated their sales at over a million then went on to say they had just published their first book. Think either they missed the part about your honor system or thought they were supposed to estimate their wildest dreams. ::)

    I'm a new author in print through a publisher and Kindle. I also publish my own work on kindle and on my podcast.

    What is considered a sale here? I don't know (yet) how many copies of the work in the work through the publisher as it is new. I do know how many KU downloads and actual sales I've had. I also know how many downloads I get on the podcast. I'm assuming I cannot use the podcast number in the sales figure :) Are KU downloads considered sales?

    Thanks!
