Best-Sellers
Abbi Glines is #3 on the Bestseller list this past week, with her self-published title Forever Too Far. She is right there under Sylvia Day who sold like 550K copies of her book last week. I don’t even want to know how many people bought Inferno, which is #1. Testament that self-published books can hang with the big boys/girls.

Question of the week:

I would like to start a book blog, but I don’t know how to get started. Not the things like setting up a blog, and choosing the right design and such – those are things I know. What confuses me is how to get yourself out there, once you start posting. How will the readers come to you? What should we do for that?
