The Mill River Recluse by Darcie Chan is the best self-published book in September

I’m glad to present a September list of best self-published books in Kindle Store. This list, as well as eight published so far, will be included in a full report for 2011.


There are 20 self-published books in Top 100, six less than in August. The good thing is that despite the general decrease, there are as much as 4 books in Top 10, including two books by CJ Lyons, who is strengthening her position month by month.

The books from Barbara Freethy are out of Top 100. The one which is still there, Silent Run, was published by Onyx, so I didn’t include it in a list.

As the books by Barbara Freethy were priced $3.99 and above, now there is a new bottom line achieved when it comes to an average price of a self-published book in Top 100. For September it’s as low as $1.53.
