Luckily, I have a writing community that was extremely
helpful and steered me in the right direction.
Some basic facts:
1. Publishers use comp titles as a gauge to show how well new titles
3. Don’t use bestsellers as a comp title. Chances are your book will not be a bestseller and you should look for modest-selling titles.
4. To find modest-selling titles, use Amazon to find similar titles and check the reviews. Bestsellers can have hundreds of thousands of reviews, modest-selling titles may have less than 1000.
