I recently put my short story “A Kitsune Christmas,” up on Google Play.
So far, no sales on that platform. I will add some of the other shorts in my series to that platform in the next few weeks.
Why bother, if there are no sales? Several reasons, I want my books available on a wide range of platforms, it forces me to rewrite my old blurbs to fit Google’s shorter word limits (which is good practice), and I just don’t trust Amazon.
Don’t get me wrong, Amazon is great and has provided over 90% of my sales and I’m happy to be with them. However, depending on just one channel is not good business.
In the near future, I will be looking at Apple, Smashwords, and Draft2Digital to set up new channels to distribute my work.
