Ebook Sales

This time last year my ebook sales rocketed, which I assumed was because people got new readers, tablets and phones. I was hoping that the same might happen again this year, but so far sales have not taken off very much.

There could be a number of reasons for this. People may still be reading the free material they have access to, so sales may come later in the month. People may not have got so many Amazon vouchers to spend on books. People may not be able to afford so many this year. Competition has increased. My subject matter could be out of date or no longer of interest. My style of book is old fashioned as there are no pictures, which are now allowed in Kindle books.

I was hoping that this would be a good passive income for me again this year and I am sure that it will bring in some money. I was hoping for more signs of it, but it is still only the fourth day of the year, so rather early to make a judgement. Hopefully I will find time to finish my next book soon and that could be a popular one. Only time will tell!
