The book market numbers can be overwhelming with the Amazon juggernaut overwhelming the industry. Authors can't afford to miss out on opportunities with this retailer. The question is exclusivity. Patty details her reasons for staying "wide" (non-exclusive with Amazon).
More importantly, she gets into the how with a summary of each major competitor to Amazon with the quirks revealed. Her synopsis of each service is to the point. Additionally, she covers the aggregators who will upload an author's work to multiple electronic storefronts. The aggregators even have the possibility of opening up new areas such as Overdrive for authors that want a shot a library checkouts.
The book is a quick read, and I'm convinced the long-term plan is to go wide. Patty's book gave me the how. Highly recommended in her series.
This book takes you through what you need to know about the various retailers, pros and cons of aggregator services like Smashwords, and how to effectively drive readers to these platforms and sell to them. It also includes intriguing tidbits about pricing (turns out Google Play will pay you 52% of your list price, *even* if they discount your book to free), and tons of helpful links. Highly recommended for authors contemplating unticking the auto-renew on their KDP Select account.
