Booktango Expands Sales Tracking and Royalty Reporting for Authors

New Sales Reports and Royalty Statements Provide Insights That Help Authors More Effectively Market Their E-Books

BLOOMINGTON, IN--(Marketwire - Jun 5, 2012) - Booktango™, the DIY free e-book publishing platform from Author Solutions, Inc., today launched new e-book sales tracking and royalty reporting capabilities for authors. These new additions provide authors with exciting new opportunities to identify their reader audience and more effectively market their book by helping them understand where and when their e-book sales occur.

"Since the launch of Booktango, we've relied heavily on feedback from our authors to make our do-it-yourself e-book publishing platform truly the best solution on the market," said Chris Bass, Director of Marketing for Booktango. "Our authors wanted to know where their e-books were selling and wanted the ability to track and review that data to better understand net sales, royalty reporting and the type of file readers download."

Now authors, even those with multiple books, can easily track their sales and royalties, all from within the Booktango platform. Additionally, authors now have access to more comprehensive information about each sale, including the date of purchase, the retailer, and the e-book format selected, all of which can be filtered and sorted according to the authors' preference. Further ensuring authors have the most up-to-date information available, sales from the Booktango Bookstore are updated regularly, and sales through e-book retailers are updated on a monthly basis.

With Booktango, DIY e-book authors now have an easy-to-use publishing solution to create, edit, format, publish, promote and distribute their e-books to every major e-reading device, all from a single platform. And with features like a free cover designer and access to marketing services, it's never been easier to create an attractive, marketable e-book.

"We developed Booktango with the vision of making it the best do-it-yourself e-book publishing solution on the market, and we're now at a point where we're looking for ways to make the best even better," continued Bass. "Publishing with Booktango is always free and best of all, authors earn the most money from the sales of their e-book -- period."

Titles published through Booktango are available through the Booktango Bookstore and leading book retailers including Amazon®, Barnes and Noble®, Kobo®, Apple® iBooks, Google® and more.
