Amazon lose out again
Discounting the mass of freebies on Draft2Digital, I still have sold more this month on the site this week than on Amazon in the last three months (2-1).
This month is not a rarity as Amazon has never failed to disappoint me in the several years I have had books for sale on the site; the norm is that I sell more in a month on Draft2Digital than in six months at Amazon.
The problem is Amazon is like a superstore and unless you have a name people recognize you get lost in the masses of books, mind it does not always work that way as I have earned a good rep for science fiction on Draft2Digital, yet the sci-fi is yet to sell on Amazon. People who go to D2D are looking for books; in Amazon, it's like going to shop for fruit and ending up buying shoes as you get derailed with the variety on show.
