Occasionally I like to share some general statistics on sales trends with respect to my books. This time I am going to give basic information on sales percentages based upon the format, giving the overall percentage each format has sold:
Print: 21.4% of sales
Ebook: 73.5% of sales
Audiobook: 5.1% of sales
With those percentages keep in mind that the print and ebook formats of my books have been available far longer than audiobook formats. In fact, Genre Shotgun hasn't been released in audiobook yet (it's still in production).
If I go by 'total months available' (for all works), as each has been released simultaneously in ebook/print, each of those two formats have had 104 months of availability, whereas audiobooks have had only 27 months of availability.
That demonstrates that the impact or share of audiobook sales is under represented by the straight percentage breakdown of overall sales.
Even so, sales vary from title to title. Possibly next time, after Genre Shotgun has been available in audio for a short while, I'll post the updated sale trends by title as I did on February 3 of 2014.
