10 Mistakes I Made Publishing My eBook, and How You Can Do it Better
Publishing is full of luck, timing, and unpredictable trends. I mean, adult coloring books?
That qualification aside, most fiction books published by a traditional publisher garner somewhere between and , sales. Sometimes less, sometimes more. An independent small press is averaging more like to 10, for novels and to 2, for story collections.
Buying a Kindle? Here Are Our Favorites
For debut books, you could cut all those numbers in half. Do keep in mind that this is after at least a year of sales. Well… no. Like baseball salaries or box office returns, book sales are heavily skewed by the minority of books that do really well. If you go into your local bookstore and look at all the books on the various tables, most of those will BookScan between 2, and 40, after a couple years of sales.
However, most books struggle to find adequate distribution, much less coverage. Most books do not get placement on tables, and many do not even get to many bookstores at all. The majority of traditionally published novels sell only a couple thousand, if that, over their lifetime.
As with anything here, we need qualifications. You also need to factor in the format. Selling 10, hardcover is worth more than 10, paperbacks. For ebooks, prices can be all over the place, even from a major publisher. It should be easy for you to get another book contract.
If you sold more than 5,, you are doing pretty well. If you sold less than 5,, then you could be in trouble with the next book.
Although it is, as always, dependent on the project. The smaller the press, the more you can scale down.
One publisher of an independent press told me that most indie press books sell — not BookScan — about 1, copies, with 3, being good sales. Even then, the publisher stressed, an author selling 3, is really just paying for themselves. Most people would be surprised at the drastic range of book sales even among the books that people are buzzing about. If you took the ten literary fiction books that all the critics, Twitter literati, and well-read friends are discussing, their BookScan numbers might range from a couple thousand to k.
I used instead of to make sure each book had at least 12 months of sales. No list is perfect, but the NYT list includes story collections and small press books alongside the big name literary authors and award contenders.
The BookScan sales of those books literally ranged from 1, to 1. The next highest book was about , Again, the range is huge.
I looked up five years of nominees from to and the range was 5, to over 1. The mean was , and the median was 72, They ranged from 2, to , with a mean of 35, and a median of 12, On average, a lot more. I checked the BookScan sales for all the books that hit the 1 spot on the New York Times list in and the mean sales were , with a median of , The top selling book was, as you can probably guess, 50 Shades of Grey at nearly 8 million.
In fact, a whole lot of the literary award finalists sold better than bottom best sellers. What About Short Story Collections? I myself have always believed this to be honest, even though I wrote and published a short story collection. However, looking at the data it actually seems that while fewer story collections sell, the ones that do can sell almost as well as novels. The seven story collections on the NYT list had a median of 23, BookScan sales… only 2k less than the median novel. Well, no.
Those are mostly collections by buzzed about debut authors or established older writers. No story collection is going to sell millions of copies like the biggest novels. All of the authors whose collections I counted in the last section sold better as novelists if they had novels out.
Since big publishers survive on the few break-out books, it makes more business sense to bet on novels or push authors to write novels instead of stories. YA fiction is also having a much-discussed boom these days. Non-fiction is an insanely huge category that encompasses everything from craft books and joke books to travel guides and memoirs. While there is some variation in average sales between different types of novels, non-fiction sales are entirely dependent on which of the 1, types of non-fiction books you are talking about.
What About Self-Publishing?
If you publish your book through an established press, you can most likely guarantee a certain level of professionalism, distribution, and hopefully coverage for your book. A great ebook idea needs to be: Specific.
If you do consulting or coaching, what problems come up again and again? Do your blog readers always ask for posts dealing with a particular issue? Ask your audience what they want, and give them a few possibilities to choose from. Be prepared to be surprised! Put your topic or ebook title in the centre and start adding ideas to it as they occur to you.
Use lines or arrows to create connections. At this stage, put everything down, however big or small — you can tidy the entire thing up later.
Then take a step back — what will they need to know before they can do that? And what about before that? Start writing a list: what chapters or major sections will your ebook need?
Look through several chapter lists to see what topics appear in almost every book. You might want to switch off your internet connection entirely, or use a program that blocks it for a certain period of time.
Use a timer. Set a timer for 30 minutes , then write until the time is up. Having the minutes ticking away is a real help when you need to stay on-task. If you need to check a quick fact, look up a link or add a screenshot, mark the place with yellow highlighter or something else highly visible — and come back to it later.Amazon has unlimited book subscriptions now, and you can even get free books from your local library.
This is true even for individual authors. Learn from the masters: the likes of Stephen King, Nicholas Sparks, and Robert Ludlum have spent a lifetime perfecting their craft. If you must cut corners and design the cover yourself, I recommend keeping things simple: grab a high quality image from Shutterstock that echoes the generic conventions of your niche and write your book title in an appropriate font.
