Kindle Wins

I have two eBooks that sell fairly well on Amazon for their Kindle ebook readers, but over the last year the same two books have faltered and hardly sold anything on the Barnes & Noble Nook platform.

Amazon has tempted me over and over to publish exclusively with them for added benefits and earnings, and given the poor state of the Nook books, I went ahead and yanked the Nook ones off the market and signed up with Amazon for an exclusive deal.

It’s not forever, I’m just going to try it out and see what happens. The disadvantage is that the Nook version also worked perfectly well for the Apple iBook reader, but being that the sales were … well, a no show … it doesn’t really matter.

Except that I know how things work in this wacky Universe we live in. Now that I’ve done that, I’m going to have complaints from Nookies (yes, that the official term for a Nook ebook enthusiast) that they can’t read my books.

No fear. Anyone out there with a Nook who wants to read Eleven Days on Earth, or God, Time, Perception and Sexy Androids, just leave a message below, or send me an email, and I’ll hook you up.

By the way, I scored one of those Kindle Paperwhites. I freaking love it. It blows the Nook glowstick or whatever it’s called right out of the park.

Kindle wins.
