There are about 1m authors trying to sell E.books. Some don't sell any, most sell very little, a small proportion make some spare cash and now and again someone hits the jackpot. Speaking from experience. When you book hits the airwaves as the "latest" someone will download a sample (10 - 20%) and if they like it they pay up and get the rest. If that person can give you a good review someone else might do the same and so on and so on but don't hold your breath. A better option is to publish your book with SMASHWORDS. They will/can convert it to E.format and distribute it to all the other Ebook sellers but not Amazon. Mr Coker who owns Smashwords also owns Amazon (I believe) and will not list your book with that company unless it sells over 1000 with other sellers. If you list it with Amazon exclusive it is not distributed to other sellers. You will find that when it hits each other seller you will make a sale because it is listed as new but if by word of mouth it doesn't get reccomendations it will die a death. It will never go out of print but without it lying on a shelf where someone can pick it up to read it, it stays hidden in space. I wrote a physical book many years ago and it didn't do well (850 copies @ £8.99) so I wrote another (125000 words) and published as an E.book. It took me two years to write and I sold 8 copies @ $2.99. But don't let me put you off because writing a good story is better than reading one. Good luck.
