Honestly, my books have not been getting into the hands of as many people as I want -- even with Smashwords's help, and they make my stuff available on all reading devices. So in a "I've got nothing to lose" move, I'm taking my 9 books off Smashwords, and everywhere else, and taking the Amazon KDP Select path.
Let's see what happens.
(I guess I'm giving up on writing books. It was a dream of mine to write full time. Sometimes life throws you a curve ball. And I suck at baseball.)
If you're interested, here's an episode of my show (also available on YouTube):
I got tired of animating. I missed writing. So, I'm back. As for KDP Select...not good. The result? Lots of free downloads, which is great. But the KDP Select free promotion is sooo damn short. Once that ended, it was back to the same one or two sales a month deal. I can see how the program can work for famous authors, but in my case, not so much. So I took my books off KDP. At least now they're available to enjoy on all reading devices.
Sales for the Nook and iPad are good, as usual. Amazon...not so good. As usual. (Thinks.) Amazon: I don't get that place. My stuff has never sold well there. Do Kindle owners think differently from, say, Nook owners? Do more older people own Kindles? Do more younger people own Nooks? Do more people with a sense of humor own Nooks? Arrrghh!
I gotta go. My head's about to implode.
