Every year, the CEO of Smashwords publishes a survey on the company’s blog. It talks about things like genre popularity, most effective price points, most popular book lengths, etc. Definitely worth checking out if you get the chance. Obviously, it’s not the only source of market statistics out there, and it only includes data from Smashwords titles, but it’s still the most comprehensive I have come across so far. Given the number of titles published through the platform, do you think it’s reasonable to extrapolate this data to the eBook industry as a whole?
