AAP: Trade Book Sales Down a Percent, eBook Sales Down 17% Through October 2016 | The Digital Reader

AAP: Trade Book Sales Down a Percent, eBook Sales Down 17% Through October 2016 | The Digital Reader | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Some segments of the legacy book publishing had good news in the AAP's latest month report, but overall the news was bleak. Trade book revenues were down 7.5% in the month of October, and as a result the industry revenues (for the 1,200 odd publishers which submit data to the AAP) were down 0.7%. Surprisingly, ebook revenues were up for the month (2.6%) but still down 17.2% for the year to date. O O O Press release: Religious presses and Childrens & Young Adult Books Publishers’ revenues increased for Oct. 2016 and for the year to-date. Despite those increases, the challenging month for adult books and educational materials resulted in a decline in overall publisher revenues of 9.3% in Oct. 2016 and 6.4% for the year-to-date in all tracked categories (Trade - fiction/non-fiction/religious, PreK-12 Instructional Materials, Higher Education Course Materials, Professional Publishing, and University Presses). Trade book revenues fell 7.5% in Oct. 2016 vs Oct. 2015, and were down 0.7% year-to-date. The cause of the decline was Adult Books, which was down 13.1% for the month. Interestingly, after 19 months of decline, Adult eBooks grew 2.6% in Oct. 2016 vs Oct. 2015; eBooks, however, remain down for the year-to-date in all trade [...]

Kindle for iPad, iPhone 5.9 Adds Guided View, new Sideloading Option | The Digital Reader

Kindle for iPad, iPhone 5.9 Adds Guided View, new Sideloading Option | The Digital Reader | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Amazon rolled out an update today for its iOS app. The update adds a new sharing option for iOS Safari, enabling readers to easily convert documents and web pages and save them to their Kindle library. The other new feature is support for Comixology's guided view, the frame by frame viewing mode which directs readers along the story. Amazon bought Comixology in 2014, and then integrated the platforms in 2015 so that users could read their  Kindle purchased comics in the Comixology apps. Now apparently the integration goes both ways. Changelog: ComiXology's Guided View is now available on Kindle! Experience comics in a whole new way with this breakthrough cinematic and immersive reading mode. Send to Kindle – Now you can save documents and web pages to your Kindle library. Tap the share button in Safari and add Kindle as a destination. Web pages are converted to Kindle format so you can adjust the text, font and page color, and read on any Kindle app or device. Bug fixes and performance improvements. You can find the app in iTunes. image by Marcus T Ward

Amazon Author Insights Has Tips for Indie Authors 

Amazon Author Insights Has Tips for Indie Authors  | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
There are many experts who can help authors get published, and now Amazon has gathered all that advice on a single site. Currently in beta, Amazon Author Insights features the advice of many published authors including Hugh Howey, Joanna Penn, Bryan Cohen, and Elizabeth S Craig as well as a number of articles by Amazon's staff (under the byline Kindle Press). The site is hosted on Tumblr, and is divided into three sections: Write, Publish, and Market. There's also a fourth section which claims to focus on tools and services, but really just lists various Amazon services (KDP, Createspace, Kindle scout, Goodreads, etc). Amazon has not announced the site yet, and it's not clear what they're trying to accomplish here.  But the articles I read all contained sound advice, so the site is definitely worth checking out.
