One of the best-kept secrets in the publishing business is how many authors use Amazon to publish their work. The number of published Amazon books is around 3 million plus, but the number of authors is not known. Just using basic math suggests there are 3 million authors assuming one book per author, but many of us have more than one published Amazon book ( I have 28). So, I arbitrarily use the 1 million figure when doing comparisons.
With a million authors fighting for attention, how does one break out of the pack?
