Some of you may have been following Tony James Slater's amazing free run to the top of the charts in the US and the UK, followed by a stunning bounce up the paid charts. He's here today to explain how he did it, and I spill the beans on first meeting Tony two years ago at a boozy conference in York.

While on the surface the following may seem to be a KDP Select success story, it’s actually something a little more important than that: a testament to the power of determination, and proof that even the most niche of books can be a self-publishing success story, a book that every agent in the UK said there was no market for.

Why Giving Away Thousands Of Free Books Is A Good Thing

Many Amazon customers (and writers) confuse the Popularity List with the Bestseller List. Today, I explain the differences between the two, get to the bottom of exactly why sales can spike so dramatically after a free run, and explain how the algorithms which feed into the Popularity List greatly favor books in KDP Select.
