Have you made the move to Nook?

Have you made the move to Nook?

I moved several of my books to Nook last week and was pleasantly surprised by the results. No. I’m not getting rich, but one or two sales are trickling in every day. One of my Bundle books that normally sells one copy per month on Amazon has sold five copies this week on Nook.

I’ve got five books listed on Smashwords now; three of them are in the premium catalog. No sales yet, but I’m hoping for good things once they get pushed out to Kobo, the iStore, and more.

Just curious more than anything else, how many of you have made a move off of Amazon? What were the results?

Nookpress makes it quick and easy to transition to Barnes and Noble. There were no files to convert, and no magic voodoo I had to perform to get my books set up. I copied my description, keywords, and everything from Amazon into Nook and it worked fine.

Smashwords was a whole other animal, but that’s another post. For now, I would like to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly about other author’s experiences with Barnes and Noble.

Did your Amazon sales go down after you made the move? Did you make enough sales on Barnes and Noble to cover the loans you forfeited using KDP Select?
