A new list. It was painstakingly collated by the folks at GalleyCat @mediabistro.com
And it is an interesting one, too.
First, the fashion for writers giving their first names as initials booms on. Personally, I always suspect that the writers with initials who write man-type stuff like thrillers are women, and the writers with initials who write romance are men.
And romance rules. In the Amazon list, anyways. Smashwords, intriguingly, has gone the non-fiction route -- and not a bad idea, too. Most non-fiction books stay on the backlist a lot longer than most novels.
Thirdly, note the lack of Nook and B&N listings. In view of their poor sales, it's not surprising.
And here goes.
