    A theory. It’s common knowledge in the indie world that something is happening at Amazon. Authors, be they wide or in KU, are reporting major losses. Some of them down by as much as 50% or more.

So what can you do to help make your indie author succeed? Rate and Review Your Favorite Books Rating and Reviewing books gives other readers a sense of what the […]

                                              Via: Flickr I just finished enrolling my books into Kindle MatchBook. If only everything were so simple. I don’t just mean the process ( I clicked on a couple of boxes and a dropdown, I’m exhausted) I mean the decision to do so.

Actually, it’s just a small ad in the business section of your local paper informing the public that you’ve created a publishing company and declaring what name you’ll be doing business under.
