Audio Book — Good Launch

Well, I had an unexpected and nice surprise this morning when Audible sent me my sales report for April. Normally, audiobook sales are about a third of ebook sales and paperbacks are about a fourth.

For whatever reason, and I am not complaining, the report showed that three or four times more people downloaded the audiobook of Cobra Flight than the ebook.

We are not talking big numbers here, but it is interesting and very heartening,

By the way, I got a note from the FindAwayVoices people who are handling non-Audible audiobook sales for me to say that Kobo will soon be distributing the audiobook. That is something unexpected because I had been under the impression that Kobo was taking only a few select audiobooks into its catalogue.

Since Kobo is much bigger in Canada than Amazon for ebooks it is an important development.
