The DNA of a Successful Book: INFOGRAPHIC

hiptypeHiptype has created an infographic called, “The DNA of a Successful Book,” which explores what goes into a good book.

According to the graphic, 300-page books have an 87 percent completion rate. Completion rates steadily drop the longer a book gets, with 700-word books only earning a 35 percent completion rate. The graphic also reveals that books that earned the most revenue cost an average of $3.99, while books that sell for $.99 are sold 12x as often as other titles.

We’ve embedded the entire graphic after the jump for you to explore further.
