How do you find ebooks on Amazon that are specifically Amazon (self)-published?

EDIT: I'm curious to see what self-published works are popular.

also, people wanted to hear about audio. here's my take, 1.5 weeks after releasing my first solo audiobook:

if you can afford the up front costs, do audio. Audio books sell all on their own. I have had to put in 0 advertising for audio, specifically (i still advertise my ebooks) and audio is roughly an additional 30-50% of my daily gross royalities. getting people to buy audio has been 0 effort, and i'm seriously considering putting one or both of my backlist series into audio.

Do you do the readings yourself or hire someone? Just curious.

And if you do it yourself, do you do the voices? You gotta do the voices, right?

My friend had an idea, wanted to see what y'all thought of it:

When it comes time next year to find an artist to do my book cover, going to Emerald City Comic Con and meeting some people at Artists' Alley. Look for styles that would fit and see if they'd do the commission for you in the near future.
