Self-Publishing Success Stories: Rachel Yu

Excerpt from Amazon press release about its Kindle Select program:

Rachel Yu is a 16-year-old author of children's books, and she earned $6,200 from the KDP Select fund in the month of December. “It’s so cool to be part of the success of KDP Select,” said Yu. “It's just like a library but with easier access. There's truly no other opportunity like Amazon for self-publishing.”

The whole press release is available at Amazon Media Room.

She generously share her updated sales number (60,000+ as of Feb 2012) with the Kindle Boards.  Congratulations Rachel. What impressive about her success is that she is writing children's books, a genre that does not sell that well on the Kindle (relatively).
