I have been publishing for both Nook and Kindle for some time now. I have, very easily, had more success with Kindle than Nook. At the same time, there are some very dedicated Nook Tablet fans. And when I took my books off of Barnes & Noble, they wanted to know when I would come back.
As such, I always end up selling much less when it comes to Nook than I do Kindle. I spend time on Kindleboards, chatting with people and I think that helps my sales. I tried spending time on Nookboards, but had nothing like the success with Kindleboards. So, the Nook people are harder to reach and I do almost no marketing to them. As such, I feel like I need to fight for each Nook sale. So, even though I sell just a fraction of my books via Nook, I am, in some ways, always more proud of those than the others. Nothing against Kindle, of course, I own a Kindle myself, but the Nook sales seem to hard-won.
Kindle folks tend to like my horror novels. RIG and The Dead Phone and Gone are the three champs. Over in the Nook world, it’s my thriller After the Snowfall that out-sells all of the others.
Kindle sales tend to be sporadic and throughout the weeks with just slight bumps on the weekend. Nook sales tend to be flat during the week, but spike sharply on weekends.
I don’t really know what all of that means, but I have just found it intriguing.
