Tip of the Day: According to an editor/friend of mine....here's how the terms are used:
bestseller - noun
best-selling - adjective
Or you can see it here on Dictionary.com
Am I a best-selling author?
My books - every single one of them - have hit multiple best-seller lists on Amazon.
Whoop dee doo.
Maybe I'm snobby. Maybe I'm too critical. But I'm not going to prance around the internet claiming best-seller status with hitting the top of one of Amazon's gabillion lists. I've even hit the top 100 on Amazon overall (paid, yes, I've hit the top 10 overall free multiple times) and I'm still not willing to flaunt it.
I don't think I'm snobby or critical. I just think I still have my head in the clouds.
I want to be a NY Times Bestseller or a USA Today Bestseller. I want to hit the big time, baby. Small successes are definitely worth celebrating. I've posted many a FB picture of my books on prominent Amazon lists. Yet...I won't let my cover artist put that coveted title next to my name.
What do you think? Am I a bestseller? Or still a wannabe?
In the meantime, pick up my YA contemporary novel, Shucked. It's free today on Amazon. :)
