The Choppy Waters of Self E-Pubbing

Posted by

Since I know everybody’s burning with as much curiosity about the sales of the Brigid and Greg collections as I am, I thought I’d share a snapshot with you. In the roughly three weeks since I published the collected Fictionlets in e-book form, I’ve sold a grand total of five copies of each, all on the Kindle. However, there have been 17 downloads of free samples at Smashwords, presumably mostly through Stanza. The books have also been sent to Barnes and Noble and to Apple for iBooks as of last week, but neither of them appear to be listing them yet.

What does all that mean? No idea. Considering how little press the books have (i.e., posts in my own blog and that’s about it), I’m not terribly surprised that they aren’t flying off the digital shelves. On the other hand, I’ve heard about people selling 100+ copies a day of e-books, and I’d like to get me some of that action. ;) So go forth, my minions! Plug my books! }:D And while I’m at it, if anybody has suggestions on super-cheap promotions, I’d love to hear them. :)
