    July Bestsellers


    We may have to retitle this the Ginn Hale chart—especially next week when her novella Feral Machines goes up! For now, Ginn’s debut novel Wicked Gentlemen is still on top of the Weightless bestseller list. But Astrid Amara dominated the chart this month with Archer’s Heart. Luckily for Karen Lord, there were only three parts to that as her debut novel, Redemption in Indigo, sneaked onto the list in fifth place. Indigo is Small Beer Press’s latest ebook and the Seattle Times loved it and so will you. It’s $4.95—get it before the price jumps!

    For August the Featherproof gang are promising to make some noise—and we have another of their titles to add. We should have A Working Writer’s Daily Planner 2011 (the 2010 edition is still good for five months and is only $1.99). We’ll also be adding Fairy Tale Review books and the journal (at excellent excellent prices) and, with luck, we’ll be shaking things up design wise and so on and so forth. Come on back, bring friends!

    June bestsellers + update


    Can anything knock Ginn Hale’s Wicked Gentlemen off the top the Weightless bestseller list? Not yet! And the good news for fans is that we have a novella from Ginn Hale coming soon. Also coming soon: more Astrid Amara, whose Archer’s Heart holds two of the top 5 positions—the third and final part will be released in ebook on Tuesday, July 6th. Set your watches!

    Nicole Kimberling’s Turnskin stays in the top 5 for now and the latest ish of our, er, 14-year-old(!) zine slipped in ahead of a few other books—no doubt helped by that $2.99 price tag. I just noticed that LCRW 24 doesn’t seem to be on this site: we’ll add it for the Tuesday update.

    Also coming Tuesday: Redemption in Indigo, a magical debut novel by Barbadian writer Karen Lord and for a limited time only it will be on here an incredibly low price—so don’t miss it!

    Later this month: huge secret things! Additions! Excitements!

    May bestsellers


    Ginn Hale’s Wicked Gentlemen continues to top the Weightless bestseller list. Her two fellow Blind Eye Books authors, Astrid Amara and Nicole Kimberling were neck and neck throughout the month until Amara pulled ahead at the end. We have the second part of The Archer’s Heart going live next week. Serial fiction: got to love it! One of our older, perennial bestsellers at Small Beer Press popped into the top 5, Carol Emshwiller’s Philip K. Dick award winner, The Mount, and Poppy Z. Brite’s Second Line is the other holdover from our previous list, this time in fifth place. (Er, shouldn’t it be in second place? Hmm.)
