I just got an email from MyEbook.com that my novel, The Little Universe, has been read on their site 5,000 times! That sounds pretty cool, but I question it since it’s only the first 35% of the book and the rest is available at a promotional offer of only $1.99. It has resulted in zero sales.
To put some perspective on this, Smashwords has had the same sample downloaded 81 times which has resulted in 3 sales at $4.99. (Perhaps more soon as it takes time for many people to get to it.) Amazon Kindle has sold 50 copies in just a few months at $4.99 and $1.99 for a promotional April price. My own website has sold over a dozen copies in just a couple of months at $3.99 which isn’t bad coming out of the gates.
In fact, the same percentage of samples at Smashwords for all three of my books have been downloaded 176 times resulting in 9 sales. Again, that sales number could rise a few points once people get to it.
The same three books on MyEbook.com have allegedly been viewed a whopping 7,389 times in just two months resulting in zero sales! Nobody has left a comment or contacted me. Not one person after 7,389 views? Something’s not adding up.
Are there any authors with confirmed sales from MyEbook.com? I’d love to know what’s going on here.
