Four self-published authors on New York Times ebook bestseller list
Both this novel and its predecessor were awarded the Man Booker Prize. NW By Zadie Smith. The narrative edges forward in fragments, uncovering truths about identity and money and sex with incandescent language that, for all of its formal experimentation, is intimate and searingly direct. A veteran of the Iraq war, Powers places that conflict at the center of his impressionistic first novel, about the connected but diverging fates of two young soldiers and the trouble one of them has readjusting to life at home. By Katherine Boo.
Four self-published authors will have a total of seven novels on the New York Times ebook bestseller list this weekend, and the founder of self-publishing powerhouse Smashwords is predicting the number is only going to grow. The highest-ranking self-published author on the 5 August NYT chart is Colleen Hoover, whose ebook Slammed "A girl falls in love with a neighbour who enjoys slam poetry, but they encounter obstacles" comes in in eighth place, ahead of ebooks by established bestsellers James Patterson and Karin Slaughter. The title chart is dominated, as it has been for much of the summer, by EL James's Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy — itself originally published as fan fiction. Self-published ebook authors are landing on the New York Times bestseller list in a big way [and] lightning struck multiple times this week," said Mark Coker, founder of Smashwords — which worked with all four of the authors to publish or distribute their ebooks — on his blog. A year ago, it was unheard of. A year from now, it'll be more commonplace.
