Go Read This | A Newbie’s Guide to Publishing: Konrath Self-Pubbed Sales
by Eoin Purcell
There’s only one JA Konrath, that’s for sure, but he’s still mostly unknown and he’s still in the minority of authors who have embraced change
I reckon he’ll be copied in 2011 for all the reasons he points to here. Good for him!
In the past six weeks, my twenty self-pubbed titles on Amazon Kindle have earned over $26,000.
In November, I sold over 9000 ebooks on Kindle. That averages out to 300 a day.
In November, I also sold 266 print copies of nine self-published titles, earning royalties of $1000. This number is skewed, since most of the titles weren’t available until the middle of the month.
I’m not allowed to disclose sales of Shaken, which was published by Amazon Encore. But I’ll say that it puts my self-pubbed sales for November to shame.
I attribute the boost I’ve gotten on my self-pubbed titles to Shaken’s success. It hung out in the Amazon Top 100 for a month, and is now ranked at #148.
So is this as good as it gets? is the ebook bubble about to burst?
