I was just reading one of my favorite publishing blogs, A Newbie's Guide to Publishing. This is a great blog from author JA Konrath and it should be required reading for every writer. Anyway, he notes that one of his books is outselling the New York Times, but yet he never hits the New York Bestseller List. You won't find Amanda Hocking on there either. Why? The New York Times doesn't list Indie authors on their bestseller list.
Now if that is their policy, fine, but it is still amusing that Indie authors are outselling the paper itself. Take a few moments to read the blog.
