Implementing Changes

We’ll be making a few minor tweaks to the list next month. The main things we’ll be doing is cutting it off at 1,000 sales and removing all authors who are not self-published independent authors (most of the authors on the list are fine, but those working through publishers of any sort, will be removed). We will also be re-working the formulas for sales estimates and generally improving the posts.

Disclaimers, a detailed explanation of our estimates, and a whole lot of authors are all in last month’s post which is viewable here.
