March authors Jayne Rylon, Mari Carr and Vivian Arend hit highest ever levels of eNYT and USA Today bestseller lists
Mar. 29, 2012 – Cincinnati–International publisher Samhain Publishing® continued to raise the bar in March, with author duo Jayne Rylon and Mari Carr’s release Western Ties debuting on the eBook bestseller list for The New York Times (eNYT) at 17, on the combined print and eBook NYT bestseller list at 26, and on the USA Today bestseller list at 59.
Just one week later, author Vivian Arend debuted her new release Rocky Mountain Desire at 14 on the eNYT list—the highest position yet for Samhain Publishing. Arend also ranked 24th on the combined print and eBook list, and 60th on the USA Bestseller list.
According to Christina Brashear, president, Samhain Publishing, these records will likely not stand for very long, with 5-7 new titles being released each week. “It’s exciting to see the success of our authors, particularly those who have developed a long-term relationship with their fans by delivering consistently strong work book after book,” she says. “We’re proud to feature such outstanding talent at Samhain.”
The New York Times’ eBook bestseller lists in fiction and nonfiction are compiled from weekly data from publishers, chain bookstores, independent booksellers and online retailers, among other sources. Since 1935, The Times has published bestseller lists, widely considered the industry standard. Bestseller lists are also published by Publishers Weekly, a trade publication, and newspapers including The Los Angeles Times and USA Today.
The USA Today Bestseller list is different from the eNYT model, in that it combines both eBook and traditional print books in the same list.
