Default Children's Authors Should Publish on Apple


One thing that my first children's book has taught me is to never assume.

I spent a lot of time on the Kindle and Nook Version of the e-book version. I published to the Apple store because it was part of a package I used; Smashword's "Meat Grinder" if you are familiar with that site.

The Apple Version of the e-book is my best selling version. Many parents use the I-Pad to teach their kids, or to entertain them. It is nothing for a mom or dad to download a quick $.99 book that has some cool looking cover art and hand the the device over.

Just something for authors looking at the children's market to think about.

You got a point, @indmoss. Once upon a time (five years ago), e-books for children came on shiny CD-ROMs that cost $40, plus a few dollars for sales tax. Today’s children’s e-books cost just that sales tax. All you need is a $500 iPad. IPad has proven an intuitive, interactive learning tool for children.

Default Great!

That's great to hear. My publisher will be submitting my e book to apple in a few weeks (the print edition is currently being converted). I wasn't sure how well apple did in sales, but this is uplifting! Thanks for the info!
