My eBook Sales – an Update

Homepreneurs suggests that eBooks are an excellent home business idea.  As you know, I’ve published a few on SmashWords and Kindle.  I received my first quarterly checks from both SmashWords and Kindle (Amazon).  As promised, this is an update of my eBook sales.  This isn’t a great deal of money – around $22.00.  Considering my books are generally priced at $.99 and I see $.76 or less, maybe not too bad?  Also, some of these books were published mid-quarter, modified and re-published.

The reason for telling you this is that I want to prove to you that it is possible to make money from eBooks and it is a real home business.  I did not leave my house to create either of these books.  All research, writing, and publishing was done at home.

The best part of eBooks is the ability to sell via multiple distributors – SmashWords, Apple, Kobo, Diesel, Barnes and Noble, Kindle,etc.  These books are available forever and I expect to continue to sell copies for some time.

One more time: If I can do this – you can do this!
