Author Earnings becomes Bookstat

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 21:46:35 GMT

https://the-digital-reader.com/2018/01/22/author-earnings-report-grows-becomes-bookstats-com/or ---Quote--- For a period of about three years (2014 to 2017) the publishing industry was turned upside down by a pseudonymous market analytics expert called Data Guy. His quarterly Author Earnings Report painted a picture of the ebook market that showed just how much was missed by official sources like PubTrack Digital, Nielsen, etc. But then early last year the Author Earnings Report site went dormant. All DG would say when queried was that he was working on a major update. That update is going to arrive later today in the form of a new more comprehensive Author Earnings Report that benefits from leveraging the far richer data feed from Data Guy's company, BookStat.com. For almost as long as DG has been releasing quarterly reports, he has also been consulting with publishers. Those consulting gigs grew into a company which now has a name and a website. ---End Quote--- More at the source.

Author Alerts and Amazon

Tue, 09 Jan 2018 00:27:29 GMT

---Quote--- Our Amazon affiliate account, which we use to get book data, was recently terminated for violating their terms of service (you cannot send the Amazon special links in e-mails). We have fixed this by linking back to our site instead, but our request for a new account was denied for the following reasons. "1-Lack of content which is original to your site and beneficial to your visitors. 2-Pages that are mainly empty when advertisement content is removed." We, of course, disagree with their assessment and are attempting to reason with them on these points, but if we cannot then we will have to shut down authoralerts.com in the near future. We are sorry about this because Author Alerts has largely been a labor of love and it is thanks to all of our wonderful users over the years. ---End Quote--- :smack: Apache
