RE: Pulling the plug on Draft2Digital?

Took me a year to hit their $10 payment threshold, and I must have lost way more than that because of their lack of pricing controls and Amazon price matching to them.

Is that so? Well, I'm not in the club so nobody told me the rules... it's just what I picked up over on kboards!

I presume you know that I'm pulling your leg? My comment is based on a line in the film Fight Club. Smile

Yep, that's the one. Big Grin

Some great lines in this movie, and a hidden depth and social commentary that is ignored by many

Today, I pulled the plug on D2D. Despite reducing the price of both my books by 50% for the last week, I have still to get a single sale through D2D, so I finally said enough is enough. I'm signing back on to KDP on A-Zon instead.

  There's an interesting blog post by Hugh Howie as to why he thinks it may pay off to remain exclusive to Amazon KDP. So you're in good company, Nav.  http://www.hughhowey.com/ruminations-on-exclusivity/

Quote from the article: "The more sales are concentrated in a single outlet, the higher your ebooks will be on bestseller lists, and the more prominent to casual browsers. Reviews will also be more concentrated."

Interesting.
