This is what she says: ‘Agents and editors think they know what readers want. They don’t always know. Readers know what readers want, and they’re expressing their wants by buying books written by indie authors. Give yourself a hardy pat on the back if you’ve completed a manuscript, but the big applause goes to our devoted fans and readers. Without them, we would be nothing.’

I'm impressed as hell at how many have done this. KB Writers Cafe is almost a university for this sort of thing. Congratulations to everybody who's done it, and I know there will be lot more to come.
I have to add my friend of 22 years (we both sold our first books to Kensington--a crappy paperback house--in 1989), Carol Davis Luce. She passed the 100,000 mark in January.
And my other buddy, Michael Prescott--he and I have been friends for ten years--is approaching 1 million sold (he's at 995000 or so right now). Sometimes, I hate his *ss!
