Seems that Mr. M. Coker, CEO of Smashwords, just issued the 2nd in the series on sales data. Here is that link for review and quite the read it is. http://bit.ly/SWData2012
So being the wise Guy I am known to be, I 'friended' Mr. C on Faceboy, and this dialogue ensued. As one can see there is some heat here. My summary is that 1000 of 120,000 titles(less than 1 %) ACCOUNTS for half the sales. So that means we all are in the 99.992 % fighting over the other half.
hmmm. now where is that Niche strategy gone. Ahh here it is.
Hope that helps a bit.
