With all the attention that e-publishing has been getting lately from just about everyone in the chain of book-to-reader, sometimes I wonder what is actually happening. Who is getting famous, making lots of money, etc.?
Can we find some statistics somewhere, to get a better image in our heads?
The answer is... Yes! Actually, I just did; I came across this super interesting post by Derek J. Canyon over on his info-rich blog, Adventures in ePublishing.
He put together a highly interesting set of graphs and statistics, and this is my favorite. Straight up, the best selling e-book genres, all ina nice handy pie chart. (I love pie charts! So easy on the brain.)
What do you think? How much would the best-selling-ness of a genre influence you toward writing it?
