Statement from an independent publisher (300 new titles per year):
“E-books combined with social media have opened up many new markets.”
“Kindle is the heavyweight, and we can’t wait for them to expand further.”
“This year through Kobo alone we’ve sold books in UK, USA, France, Germany, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Hong Kong, and India.
“iBooks through Apple is also proving good in Canada – enough so for us to recently launch a Canadian website.”
“There are improvements in physical books too. The databases have improved significantly within, and between, the online retailers. For example loading a book up with Amazon now gets the book visible wherever Amazon are – UK, USA, Canada, France, Germany, Japan.”
