I have been looking
a bit some what obsessively at my sales numbers. Physical sales are significantly outselling eBook sales. Even when I have run promotions on the eBooks I have seen a bigger bumps in sales on physical copies than electronic. Considering the trend of eBook sales I find this strange. I wonder why that is. It can’t just be because we don’t want our kids touching our iPad and such. OK maybe they aren’t allowed to touch my iPad but the family iPad is used predominantly by my 3 and 5 year old.
If we buy apps for our children to play with, why not books. Or is this is an anomaly to my book. Are other children’s authors are finding the same thing. Even now with my eBook on sale for $1.99 http://www.amazon.com/Egret-The-Elephant-ebook/dp/B009JVYX1I People are still choosing to spend nearly $15.00 for a physical copy. http://www.amazon.com/Egret-Elephant-Meet-Volume/dp/1479170798/
If any of my readers are children’s writers I would love your opinion. Even if you’re not in the industry I am curious what your thoughts are. Would you buy an eBook for your child? I know I have, and have read to my kids from my iPad. Would you, do you?
