Data behind what sells based on Smashwords

Mark Coker of Smashwords recently posted this slide deck discussion what works and does not work based on data taken from ebook sales. Some highlights are
  • Price point of 2.99 to 5.99 appears to be the best range for Indy Authors.
  • Price of 0.99 to 1.99 under perform by as much as 60%.
  • In general ebook readers prefer longer books (>100k words) but Romance and Erotica tend to want short books (75-85k).
Check the slide deck for other interesting facts:
