I assume most hubbers do writing elsewhere...

      I made a Kindle version of my book which is also in paperback. Both are on Amazon, although the paperback is also on B&N. Sales are nothing great,  but I do make a little more money from the Kindle version. It sells for less than the paperback, which is probably why people tend to buy more for Kindle.

      have done several kindle books, also Lulu and Createspace. Not going to quit anytime soon.
      Selling 3-4 a week right now.. My philosophy: Create a thousand books and sell one a day! You can write  a kindle book in a weekend.

      Looking at the appalling English in the title, I presume those here write at the Mills & Boone level.  One does not DO writing.  One writes.

        Then maybe you should write something. Besides nasty messages in forums that is.

      My Kindle version sells for $4.99. Even though it sells better than the paperback version, I'll tell you something -- more money can be made from writing online, such as HP. At least that's my experience. You get search traffic to your hubs. But actual books (either e-book or physical) needs to be promoted by the author or publisher. It's much harder to archive success with books.

    Smahwords and Booktango are the two sites where I have several eBooks, nothing on paperback, but I do get regular sales from both sites.
