From DBW Daily, October 29, 2014

Penelope Ward’s self-published Stepbrother Dearest remains squarely within the top ten, jumping two places into the No. 4 position this week. And Deborah Bladon, also a self-published author, lands not one but three titles on this week’s list–each of them a bargain for readers at just $0.99.

Altogether, there are six self-published titles within this week’s top 25.

The success of those titles contributes to reducing the average price of a best-selling ebook further still, to $6.26, down from $6.91 last week.
