I assume this reply to my old post is directed to me.

I didn't pay for an assigned review. Even if exposure had increased a million-fold that was no guarantee that sales would increase, so I started a Facebook page instead. I keep in touch with more people that way, but it hasn't enhanced sales. I guess middle-grade sci-fi just isn't a popular genre.
Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.
Hard copies of all are on Amazon.

How you distribute will affect your royalties for sure.
But in most cases, authors won't get very much no matter how they distribute.

The internet has made this a very long tailed phenomenon.
A few writers make a LOT, while some do 'okay', and the rest don't make minimum wage, with many having a net loss if they spent a lot to 'self' publish.
