Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) February 11, 2011
International publisher Samhain Publishing, Ltd. today announced that author Maya Banks’ eBook romance "Colters’ Daughter", released February 1, 2011, has landed on the Feb. 20 edition of the New York Times Best Seller List (position: 21) for eBooks, and on the USA Today Extended List (position: 114) for eBooks and print books. "Colters’ Daughter" is only available in eBook format, and its listing represents the first time a digital-first publisher has been listed on any NYT Best Seller List.
“We are thrilled to see Maya recognized for her extraordinary work,” said Christina Brashear, publisher, Samhain Publishing. “We look forward to seeing many Samhain authors included on both of these prestigious lists in the future.” You can read more about "Colters' Daughter" at http://store.samhainpublishing.com/colters-daughter-p-6246.html
In an acknowledgment of the growing sales and influence of digital publishing, The New York Times recently began publishing e-book best seller lists in fiction and nonfiction. The lists are compiled from weekly data from publishers, chain bookstores, independent booksellers and online retailers, among other sources. Since 1935 The Times has published best seller lists, widely considered the industry standard. Best seller lists are also published by Publishers Weekly, a trade publication, and newspapers including The Los Angeles Times and USA Today.
The USA Today Best Selling Book List is different from the NYT model, in that it combines both eBook and traditional print books in the same list.
