Best Selling Author?

So recently I’ve been seeing a whole lot of books by indie authors that say: By Best Selling Author on their books and it made me think. What exactly does that even mean? It made me wonder what list they were referring to and if it really meant anything at all or if it was just to lure readers to their books?

But then I found an article about just that with an author that was at the top of Amazon for her book just a little while and it made me change my mind about being too critical about the title. The article is by Kailin Gow and it can be found here. Interesting read and gave me many things to think about. Check it out it’s a good read.
