Selling a Million Copies: Oliver Potzsch an Amazon First

Last month, Amazon announced that Oliver Potzsch, author of the Hangman’s Daughter series, is their first author to have hit 1 million copies in print, digital and audio combined.

Before you hit the submit button for Amazon’s publishing group, consider that 25% of all books are still sold through bookstores.

Another 23% are sold through other retailers like Costco and other big box stores.

If you’re thinking of giving up on regular publishers just because of all the coverage of digitally published success stories, consider that e-books are one of the biggest changes in publishing right now. Of course the media is seeking out their success stories and covering them in larger numbers right now than traditionally published success stories.

You have a lot of options these days. Be sure to make an informed choice to find the best path for your books.
