Indies don't count

The new NYT ebook list specifically excludes "self-published books including single-vendor self-published titles," according to Amanda Hocking over on Kindleboards (quoting a PW newsletter). Snort. Are they afraid there will be a bunch of indies on the list or something?


  1. Are they discounting them because they can't get dual sales information from both publisher and retailers? (since the retailer is kind of the publisher....) I thought I saw something about how they get the sales information from both the publisher and the retaliers to compare it.

  2. Unknown. There are probably articles on the subject around the internet; more research is indicated.
