Hi, considering the ultra long approval time (most of our books have been waiting in approval for a month now) and very low sales figure (single digit sales for our approved books), our company is considering move out of iBookstore as we have hundred of children books in pipeline to convert and it does not seem to justify the cost.


Is there any sales figure or success story on Internet or personal that we can share with our team to keep the spirit up?

    Apple tends to discourage sharing specifics as part of the agreeement. The best you can hope for is vague yay/nay.




    I tend to work with multiple channels rather than just one....seems like a basic move in any case.

    Sales is a direct function of marketing. The more heavily you promote your books the better they sell. Additionally, iBooks Author is most likely not your best choice for a design and distribution platform, as it is iPad only. - Fabe
