E-Book Success (for me anyway)
Tis the season to be thankful, so...
The Kindle E-Book Heroes of the Fallen has been randomly leaping into the 30,000th spot ranking on Amazon. 30K may not seem that great until you take into account that there are 700,000 e-books on Amazon.
Yeah, so now I don't feel quite so shabby.
Funny thing is, I sincerely doubt that most of my target demographic use a Kindle, IPad, etc. I estimate 10% at best-but that's admittedly a baseless guess. I honestly have no idea.
When it comes to marketing on behalf of an E-Book I am still lost, personally I am more likely to be stoked about a rare find in a used book store than I am about the latest technology-must be the literary barbarian in me.
But as a friend of mine likes to say, 'its all about delivering a story, its not the medium that counts'.
As for E-Book success, seems I am running on good old word of mouth and/or the friends that never bought the hardback.
Either way, lets keep it up shall we?
I have kids to feed.
