I have a backlog of old middle-grade ebooks that average around 1,000 KENP page reads a day. They're shorter books, so that number isn't totally terrible. My question is--would it be worth bringing them to print? I hear that MG does better in print and I see tons of other books in the niche with more reviews and all of them have print versions.

I already have Vellum so it wouldn't take a ton of work. I'm just wondering if it'll be profitable.

Yes, I would have done it yesterday ;) Middle Grade is a bit of a tougher market from what I've read but I would still try it out for yourself backed by Amz Ads.

Parents prefer print books, so yeah. You should do this, like, yesterday.
Even for me, writing for adults. Paperbacks account for on average 10 percent of sales, and up to 40 percent in December ahead of Christmas. I find that people who really love the ebook buy a paperback copy to keep.

It's free money. Do it!

Do it immediately. In kids books, print is 95% of sales... at least. Best of luck!
:eek:

Oh wow, seems like I'm missing out on a lot of money! I'll do it now! Thanks!!
