Do Indie Ebook Authors Earn More Than Traditionally Published Authors?

Smashwords StudyAccording to a recent Smashwords study, the answer is yes.  Indie Ebook authors earn 3 to 5 times higher royalty percentages. Another interesting fact  the survey found is that longer ebooks in terms of word count sell better than shorter books, but books with shorter titles sell better than those with longer titles.

Some of the results of the survey are surprising and some are silly, but all are interesting. You can view the slide show Smashwords founder, Mark Coker, presented at the recent RT Booklovers convention here.  You can also download a free copy of his ebook, “The Secrets to Ebook Publishing Success,” from his post.
