    No sales yesterday, no sales today, and no sales tomorrow....

      or ever again, thanks to NOOKPress. I received a reply to my NOOKPress support email, everything is working perfectly. Evidently all at once people have just completely stopped buying my ebooks from BandN.com. But they are continuing to buy them from Amazon.com. They are THE SAME BOOKS, SO WHY IS THAT? I checked and as far as I can tell my 22 NOOKPress titles are for sale. If anyone sees that they are not, let me know thanks.

       

      Now I will have some verifiable ebook purchases made from my ebooks for sale at BandN.com, and see if the sales are Reported to me. I suggest that others do the same. let us get to the bottom of this situation, and find out what is happening.

          Still not one sale. I am making arrangements to have verifiable sales made, and will see what the result is.

            When you have a lot of titles for sale and you're selling at all major booksellers,plus you've been on these sellers with your titles, practically from their beginnings, you see sales patterns. I can tell the difference between a slump in sales and when a certain seller's reporting is delaying. I too have tested this a few times with purchases, to see when they would show up and it confirmed the sales reporting delays but the sales did eventually show up with exception of one. I actually posted on the seller's forum about the one that didn't show up, giving the name of it and the ID of (I also sent an email to them about it) and I still had a fellow publisher tell me in the mean time, that lost sales don't happen. While I think they do happen, I suspect it is rare. As far as sales tracking/reporting, I believe it does go into a delay mode at all seller's from time to time and is easy to tell for us who have 60 to 75 titles for sell (depending on which seller). For example, the delay other members are reporting, has been happening for the past couple of days and looks like it is occurring today as well.

                If you want you can continue calling  from April ist to date (April 25th for me), the "past couple of days".without a single sale Reported, but It does no good to put a band-aid on a cancer, This situation is very different from past temporary glitches, and it needs to be looked into at once.

                 

                At this time that powerful bookseller Kobo.com has sold twice as many of my ebooks this mnonth as has BandN. BandN's market includes the USA, Kobo has never sold a copy in the USA for me. My Amazon.com sales are relatively normal. Obviously BandN's new platform NOOK Press is not reporting ebook sales.

                 

                I see no indication that NOOK Press.com will ever resume Reporting my ebook sales.
