Goodbye, Nook.

When I first published Catskinner’s Book, I published on Amazon and I enrolled in Amazon’s KDP select program.  After the first 90 days, I decided not to re-enroll in KDP so that I could sell the book through other retailers, specifically Barnes & Noble, since I knew people who used the Nook reader.

Well, after six months on Barnes & Nobel, I have not made one single Nook sale.  Not one.  So I have decided to pull Catskinner from B&N and re-enroll in KDP.  I still have the .epub file on my hard drive, so if anyone out there really wants a Nook compatible copy, buy it on Amazon and I’ll send you the .epub file.  Fair enough?

I don’t know when I’ll use my KDP free days yet, I am hoping to coordinate the free days with a publicity push.  I’ll keep ya’ll in the loop, okay?

    Sorry to hear about the lack of Nook sales, but it is interesting stuff. Thanks for sharing with all the budding self-publishers out here. Have you heard if the Nook is having any success, or is it getting trounced by Kindles and Kindle apps?

  2. Kindle supposedly has around 50% of E-book sales. In my experience, it’s a lot higher….

  3. I know what you mean. My SP works were on Smashwords – I made one sale over a year. So I’ve pulled it and enrolled with KDP again. I figured putting up my cheapest book for free might gain some publicity for the others. Good luck!!
