EBooks & How JA Konrath Makes Me Green With His Green
So, I'm selling ebooks on Amazon's Kindle. I'm hardly the only author doing this right now - whether it's traditionally published or "indie" - but I am experiencing far fewer sales than a lot of other folks, and frankly, I have no idea why. The short of it is my stuff simply isn't selling as well as other authors and I'd like to figure out why. This isn't a plea for a sympathetic sale (although if you want to grab any of them, that's cool, too!) but more an open workshop to help me diagnose the problems I'm having moving ebooks. I've spent a lot of time trying to figure it out on my own and with a few close friends giving input as well, but nothing seems to move the books. Over on author JA Konrath's Blog he writes frequently about his success selling ebooks on Amazon. The guy's on-track to make $100,000 this year from ebooks sales ALONE! Now, I don't know about you, but I could certainly find some uses for that extra hundred grand, hence my sincere desire to see my ebooks sell into those levels that Joe does. I mean, a hundred grand from ebooks alone? Color me green with freakin' ENVY! That's amazing, inspiring and depressing all at the same time. So, I'm opening the floor up here: tell me what I'm doing wrong. Tell me what you think the problem is and maybe we can workshop some stuff to see if things pick up. I'm utterly fascinated by this problem, so any and all advice/input is sincerely appreciated. Here's a list of links of what I've got for sale right now on Amazon. Please use the comments section to chime in and tell me where I'm screwing this stuff up. Honesty is very much appreciated!
