I have no idea what this teaches beyond that having one's cover on the front page of Fictionwise sells books, but last night THIS MAGIC MOMENT was #8 on their romance bestseller list, and #17 on the overall list. Check out http://www.fictionwise.com/ebooks/c9/Romance/?si=0
While you're there, poke around a little bit. Look at the wide range of prices. Some of the books are directly published by authors. Some are there through other publishers like mine. Some may come through the big NYC print publishers. Every one of those prices represents a different payment to the author. Fictionwise will not sell a book at full cover price, and they take a large slice of the sale price for themselves. The balance is split between me and Belgrave House. For those selling through their NYC print publishers, the royalty rate is likely to be much lower.
It really is the Wild Wild West out there.
And don't forget, MYSTIC WARRIOR should be on your brick-and-mortar store stands now.
