Holy shit! Over 1,000 authors will hand-sell books at over 400 independent bookstores on Small Business Saturday! I can't believe how big this thing has become. Look for us to make it even bigger in the coming months! Indies First!
From Forbes, comes the surprising news that hardcover sales are outpacing ebook sales in 2013. Strange, strange, stranger. Perhaps the ebook sales ceiling is lower than anybody expected. I'm such a Chicken Little about this stuff that I have to remind myself of certain stats: In 2012, ebook sales accounted for only 14% of total book sales. And though I can't find the exact figures, I imagine that ebook sales account for even less of total book sales in the literary genre.
