I downloaded and analyzed my royalty report from Amazon, and the royalties for expanded distribution were disturbing. I had sold twenty copies expanded distribution of one book and made $5. Bummer. The rest weren't quite that bad, but not good, either. So, this is what I'm going to do:
Each book will now have two versions . . . exactly the same cover and content . . . but, different isbns. One book will be distributed through Amazon/Createspace only, and the other will be distributed through expanded distribution only. The expanded distribution version will cost significantly more.
I already checked with CreateSpace and this is legal.
Anybody see any negative ramifications of this?
