One of my stories had six page views in fourteen days, but no sample downloads. Should I be excited that the novel seems to be having more exposure or disappointed that my blurb and/or cover image don't appear to be attractive enough?
Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.
Hard copies of all are on Amazon.

These stats are from Smashwords only, right? Unfortunately, no other e-book supplier provides such info. Nonetheless, most of the other authors who are in the same Facebook groups as I'm in agree that results from Smashwords are very disappointing and have been for months, as readers seem to go directly to the sources which supplied their e-readers - Amazon for the Kindle, Barnes & Noble for the Kindle, Sony for the Sony Reader, etc.

You are on Amazon, right? I would guess that e-books from Amazon sell all other sources combined by something like 25 to 1.

From what I understand mostly other writers are hanging out at Smashwords and the value of Smashwords isn't what you sell on Smashwords but the markets you have access to through them. I have only sold a couple of books on Smashwords itself. I am doing well on Apple, Kobo and Sony. Better than on Amazon

"It seems rather like wanting to be ... a writer, rather than wanting to write. It should be a by-product, not a thing in itself. Otherwise, it's just an ego trip." - Roger Zelazny

It's really not that hard. Just tell me a story.

I don't believe I'd purchased my Kindle before I uploaded most of my novels to Amazon.

I feel like an idiot. So many chances missed. I'll have another try at the weekend and this time I'll read the instructions VERY carefully.
