In the last post I showed you the numbers for my Kindle sales. This time I show you the less than spectacular sales for all other e-book outlets where I’m selling my fiction. These are sales totals for all of 2010.
Total Books Sold:
- Smashwords: 28
- Barnes & Noble: 2 <– One of these was me buying my own book!
- Sony: 0
- Kobo (formerly Shortcovers): 0
- Apple: 0
As you can see, Smashwords and Barnes & Noble are the only other markets I have sold to. Somehow the Kobo market does not surprise me as I’m not sure they are even selling my books yet. Every time I check, nothing is there. I know for sure that Tales From Ocherva is in the Apple store, but I may be the only one who knows that. ;-)
I also know for sure that Starstrikers is in the Sony e-book store because I can see it there. If you notice to the left of the book, you can also spot Null_Pointer. But still not seeing anything in the Kobo store. I don’t know how to get in the Borders e-book store, I assumed it was related to Kobo, which is why I’m not showing in the Borders catalog. For some reason I thought Kobo would be more self-publisher friendly, but they are not. Pity, their android reader is quite nice.
Smashwords has been very helpful in getting my books into other markets, but I will start doing it myself for Kindle, Apple and Barnes & Noble for the next book. I have better control and can upload my epub file directly through their author services.
