Kindle surprise and disappointment

Kindle surprise and disappointment | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Stephen Curry: the pleasure and pain of ebooks

Via Carlos Pinheiro
Marianela Camacho Alfaro's insight:

"... the pleasant surprise at how painlessly I moved to reading ebooks has been tempered by an annoyance more enduring than sunlit reflections in my glossy screen. I have been repeatedly disappointed at the low quality of the texts that I have bought from Amazon's Kindle store. The frequency of typographical errors, sloppy layout and poor image quality, even on my relatively small sample of around twenty titles, has made me wonder if the 'e' in ebook stands for easy money. This seems strange given the care publishers normally take over printed versions — I have only very rarely come across typos or pagination errors — but the evidence from my online purchases is mounting. "

How to find a beta reader for your self-published book | Self-Publishing Advice

How to find a beta reader for your self-published book | Self-Publishing Advice | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it

U.S. fantasy author Michael La Ronn offers top tips on how to find beta readers to help you improve the quality of your self-published books

Penelope's curator insight, April 24, 2014 6:30 PM

 

So you've written a book. Now what? Many authors use "beta" readers. That is, a person who will read your book draft and give you constructive criticism.

 

The writer, Michael La Ronn, shares some thought-provoking suggestions on how to find your perfect beta reader through Goodreads.com. Goodreads was just purchased by Amazon, so it could be the perfect match for author and reader.

 

Apparently, YA, epic fantasy, romance, and sci-fi authors may have an easier time finding their readers. Persistence is the key, according to La Ronn, and he gives several great tips on searching for and cultivating the author/beta reader relationship.

If the Kindle fails so will ebooks

I don’t get why anti-Amazon people get up in arms whenever they find an author who links to the Amazon pages for their books. Or whenever a publisher out there seems to favour the Seattle Beh...
Marianela Camacho Alfaro's insight:

"Even if every publisher, every author, and every editor out there studiously avoided sending traffic to Amazon in any way, that wouldn’t even cause a measurable dent in Amazon’s book or ebook revenue.

People go to Amazon, they aren’t sent there.

Pointing people anywhere else will only result in lower affiliate fees for the author or publisher as people follow the link, close the tab, and then go to Amazon directly to buy it there anyway."
