Smashwords Releases eBook Sales Data!

 As someone who publishes on Smashwords, I got an update today about their company blog, which has made public a powerpoint the owner recently gave on ebook sales.

Ignoring the advertising speak, it’s some really interesting stuff. Apparently longer ebooks (100k+ words) sell better (unless you’re selling Romance or Erotica) and $2.99 to $5.99 is the optimal price point. If you’re thinking of Indie publishing, I highly recommend you take the time to skim through this powerpoint as it’s great to finally have some real data about what’s working and what isn’t.

Brilliant! Althought you might have to be a child of the 70’s or 80’s to really get it. 🙂
