A friend turned us on to the fact that there are tons of people self-publishing e-books now, and more than a few self-published e-books that have made it to the top of the New York Times e-book bestseller list, a rather impressive feat, considering these books are largely published without any real public relations support. We took a look at the e-book list and picked a bunch of our fave titles and synopses — and then we came up with our own. Can you tell which is a New York Times bestseller and which is a totally made up title? Only seven of these are real, so mark your answers and then check back with us at 5 p.m. EST when we reveal the results!
