Smashwords Self-Published Bestseller List, March 2014

(from publishersweekly.com)

Kristy Moseley's romance Enjoying the Chase grabs the top spot on our list of the best-selling titles published on the Smashwords platform -- which are distributed to Amazon, the Apple iBookstore, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo -- with Moseley also coming in at #13 with The Boy Who Sneaks in My Bedroom Window and #25 with Nothing Left to Lose. Enjoying the Chase is the stand-alone companion to Nothing Left to Lose.

Also occupying three spots on this month's list is Melody Grace, whose romances Unconditional, Epic Love, and Unbroken came in at #2, #8, and #20 respectively. And while romance still dominates -- a whopping 19 titles in the top 25 are either romances or YA romances -- Shayne Parkinson turns in a strong performance with three works of historical fiction making our list. At #4 and #5 respectively are the second and third installments in her Promises to Keep trilogy, Mud and Gold and Settling the Account, while A Second Chance -- the sequel to the Promises to Keep series -- sits at #9.
