    1. I wonder what constitutes a “best seller” in self-publishing. I’ve asked Outskirts Press (and others) to give me a specific number of copies sold by the top sellers. I’ve never received a satisfactory response. As I approach a decision point for publishing my own book — self-publish, go with a subsidy publisher, or continue to pursue traditional publishers — an answer with quantitative data would help me greatly in this process.
