David Staniforth Hi Desirea. I used to publish through Smashwords as well as Amazon, which meant that my books were available through Barnes & Noble too. My books simply were not selling, so I took the decision to go exclusive with Amazon and joined their select programme. The promotional opportunities this provides has meant that my books have gone from selling tens to selling thousands. I've probably lost a few readers in the past year, but I've gained so many more. I may change back at some point in the future, but for now I will remain exclusive to Amazon.
