Author of some self-published books. I can't find significant coverage of the book "Dead Paki Walking" in multiple reliable sources, only booksellers and blogs. Article claims that it's "best selling" but there is no citation for that. The Hollywood Reporter site that's linked to does not mention the books or the author at all. ... discospinster talk 17:02, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

I don't believe the term 'best seller', in normal usage applies here. From Amazon the Kindle sales rank is;
"Amazon Bestsellers Rank: #34,285 Paid in Kindle Store"

  • Delete - Aside from 5 (Indonesian language) items returned from Google News (that I can't read), I seem unable to turn up anything that closely resembles WP:RS.  -- WikHead (talk) 17:25, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Delete I have googled the author and can't see them meeting WP:AUTHOR notability guidelines--5 albert square (talk) 18:17, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Delete Per Amazon.co.uk it's their 532,663rd bestseller (so not exactly Barbara Taylor Bradford). However it seems to do better as a Kindle download; it's
#35,788 Paid in Kindle Store
#5 in Kindle Store > Books > Nonfiction > Social Sciences > Discrimination & Racism
#44 in Kindle Store > Books > Nonfiction > Politics & Current Affairs > Ideologies
#52 in Books > Society, Politics & Philosophy > Social Sciences > Discrimination & Racism > Racism
I can't however see anything on WP:BK about "bestsellers". The book appears not to be notable enough to confer notability on its author, and nothing on the author's page itself appears to meet WP:AUTHOR. Tonywalton Talk 18:36, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
