A targeted e-book publishing and bestseller plan can get you in the public eye and onto certain bestseller lists (such as the Wall Street Journal’s) more quickly than a print publishing and bestseller plan.
Here are some facts about the state of digital publishing. Print books are still strong, but e-books are growing. The book-tracking site Author Earnings recorded that during the last three quarters of 2017, there were $1.3 billion in e-book sales.
Some 266 million e-books sold in 2017; 141,311 of these were self-published.
About 26% of e-book sales came from the traditional Big 5 publishers. Some 35% from combined independent self-published or no-listed publishers, 105 from Amazon, about 12% from trade publishers of different sizes, and the rest from a variety of other publishing models.
The thing is, today readers and authors have an option. They can publish in print or electronically. Some prefer to do both (we encourage our authors to offer their works in all formats). Our authors, in fact, are published in traditional print format as well as in e-book format (and sometimes in audiobook format). This ensures that readers can find and enjoy our authors' works in the format that best suits their preferences.
