There are so many choices for an e-book platform. Sure, Amazon’s Kindle is the biggest gorilla in the petting zoo, but there are couple of other creatures begging for a handout.
I’ve been fortunate to have the e-book version of my human trafficking thriller, Little River, listed on Amazon (US, UK, EU, and AUS), Barnes and Noble’s Nook, Kobo and Apple’s iBook.
I’m like most readers, I will read a book in just about any format. I switch between them as I find interesting books and offers. From a sales perspective, I find that the Apple iBook version is the slowest horse in the race. What I mean is, I like the platform and the Apple iBook reader, but the number of sales from this point of distribution is lower than the others.
So, my question to you is, How many of you use the Apple iBook service?
iBook or Not?
Let me know if you’re an Apple ibook reader, to not. If you are, I have a few ibook copies of Little River as a thanks for your response. Simply reply, or in the form below, please provide me your e-mail, I will send you a gift code to redeem your ibook. First come first served, limited numbers available…blah, blah, blah.
Simple, no strings attached. Leave a review if you’d care to.
I tallied it up and I sell 600+ books on Amazon for every one sold anywhere else. In iBooks, that would come to 14. In a perfect world, my iBooks would be as much as my Amazon sales.
That seems about the same as my experience as well. I’m happy to see you received your gift code too. Thanks, Laura!
