Fascincating comparison of trad vs. indie sales and royalties


Here's a unique look at how one and the same book did

a) published by a small publishers and
b) published independently.

And since the author had the book out for 12 months with the small publisher, before getting the rights back, she could compare the results for the first 12 months she published it independently.

They are ... stunning.

She sold 277% more units as indie author.
She made 325% more money.

Read it all here, including graphics: ]One Indie Author’s Debut Year Income

Compelling arguments for going indie. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I tweeted the blog post and got a thank you tweet from the author. emoticon So I tweeted a link to this thread to let her know how I learned of it.

Oooh, thank you!

I think there is so much to learn, from all those experiences other authors have and are willing to share.
