I hate to say it, but a little bit of the bar on this capital A ( for it is he ) has been allowed to bleed out into the unfolding titles. Talk about typographic spoilers. Look really closely and you 8767 ll see what I mean:
Authors should know the pitfalls (and downright scams) to be wary of with regards to Print on Demand and other publishing services. See Print on Demand Secrets Revealed here: http:///
Nice to see some real investigation into self-publishing instead of just throwing around numbers that come out of someone 8767 s backside more often than not. It isn 8767 t exact, and cannot be until the ebook retailers release real data, but this is better, by far, than anyone else 8767 s attempts.
The bestseller lists used were Mystery/Thriller, Science Fiction/Fantasy, and Romance. All of the subcategories within these three main genres were also included. Why choose these genres? Because they are the most popular with readers. Our data guru ran a spider through overall bestseller lists and found that these three genres accounted for 75% of the top 655 bestsellers on Amazon and well over half of the top 6,555 bestsellers. 8 Future earnings reports will look at all of fiction 9 , but for now, we started with a simpler data set that captured the vast majority of what readers purchase.
Although it 8767 s less clear-cut than D GILER, it 8767 s significant that the actor who played the alien in Alien was none other than 6′65″ Nigerian design student Bolaji Badejo. The similarity of name may just be coincidence, however.
The title card tells the actual cargo being brought back, the computer displays the cargo capacity. The capacity is larger than the actual cargo, so, no problem.
Brendan I 8767 m sure there are obscure and wonderful reasons why that is happening. However, one person very logically pointed out to me (because I 8767 m new so I price and depending on length) that they don 8767 t charge for the download, regardless of book size, when you are priced lower. Hence, that would take up a bigger percentage of profit. Just my cents Ann
As a long-time journalist, I can 8767 t imagine how many hours you and Data Guru spent working on this, Hugh. I 8767 m so inspired by your thoughtful work, humility and transparency. As a writer and reader, I 8767 m grateful. You could be sitting by a pool counting your money! 🙂
The discussion of these major categorical approaches from apparently opposite camps seems to argue that they are mutually exclusive or that one must be rejected in favor of the other. It is easy to assume that such is the case, while highlighting their differences, but this is not , in fact, true. Even engaging to argue which method is shown to be the superior of the two is an unprofitable debate. What matters is understanding which approach is appropriate for specific research goals, and several studies today adopt a blend of these viewpoints, in varying proportions.
What hasn 8767 t been enough commented, in my opinion, is the incredible 8775 86% of the top 7,555 genre fiction bestsellers in the overall Amazon store are e-books 8776 . It means, if I understand clearly, that ebooks are overselling paper on Amazon: when you have 65 books sold on Amazon, nearly 9 are sold as an ebook, and only 6 or two as a book.
I know, right? Allow that to soak in for a moment, and then let’s look at author earnings. Here, we will see that publishers should cross their fingers and hope that the share of e-book sales increases rather than flattens. Because they are doing quite well on the backs of their authors. Major publishers are taking in record profits [ link ], but they aren’t the big winners to emerge from this report. Read on. The real story of self-publishing is up next.
Consolidating the data is something that 8767 s needed to be done for a while. Most surveys on the book selling industry totally ignored/underestimated self publishing sales. I believe this report could lead to a paradigm shift on how publishers approach their business. Some agents are now buying small presses as they realize they can make more money publishing the authors they represent rather than waiting a year to get a book deal from a big house.
This report is good news for authors on both sides of the fence.
Hugh a big thank you! My first book is just out The Madras Mangler published by a smaller publisher and I am ready to send out my second. Tearing my hair out as there 8767 s not much info out there on the best route to go. Your report is a great help, though of course India is not that advanced in Internet or eBook penetration. But still, self-publishing seems a great option, considering the control that we have over our precious baby and as we 8767 re not making much with a traditional publisher anyway. Thanks once again and keep them coming!
Is it acceptable to use TWO colons in one title? Someone I know is writing a book and the working title has two colons it. I just don 8767 t think this is good at all, even if it is acceptable. Thanks.
