Self-published titles '22% of UK e-book market' - The Bookseller

Ahhh ... A nice quiet day.
Panzer took a nice relaxing trip in the Catosphere today. Our happy kitty pilot didn't hear any arguing or snarling or crying or disruptive behavior anywhere. After just enjoying the quiet for a while he stopped in at The Bookseller site to find something interesting for you.

According to a post at the site by Lisa Campbell, some good news for indie authors was discussed at the Nielsen BookInsights Conference last week. Although growth of ebooks in the UK is not what it was 2 or 3 years ago, growth of self-published ebooks is growing. Self-published ebook sales for 2015 were 22 percent of all digital ebook sales compared to 16 percent for 2014. And where do all those self-published ebooks come from? According to Steve Bohme of Nielsen Book UK, it's Amazon self-published ebooks. Also covered in the post are audiobook sales, print book sales and tablets and other ebook reading devices impact on sales.

Panzer says, "Indie ebooks are being recognized by readers for their value in the marketplace."

Note: This is a l-o-n-g post. You'll need a cup of tea and two muffins for today's read.
