Rick Chapman lays into Amazon advocates, KDP pricing strategy

Rick Chapman lays into Amazon advocates, KDP pricing strategy | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it
Indie science fiction author and business book writer Rick Chapman has unleashed a long diatribe against Amazon’s pricing model for Kindle Direct Publishing, which does make some valid points – although they’re buried among a screed against Amazon’s defenders (who he charmingly refers to as the Aggregated Amazon Ankle Grabbers, or AAAGs), and also somewhat obscured when he lets the invective get in the way of clear presentation of his argument. Which basically, stripped of all the name-calling and rhetoric, is this: Kindle Direct Publishing’s pricing policy of taking 65 percent of authors’ and small publishers’ revenues when they price their ebooks under $2.99 or over $9.99 is distorting the market and is an attempt at price manipulation, when in fact there should be no such pricing structure at all.

Hispabooks: Spain Beyond Orwell and Hemingway

Hispabooks: Spain Beyond Orwell and Hemingway | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it
At El Pais, Chris Finnigan took a look at Hispabooks, a small publishing house in Madrid started by two English-speaking editors, describing it as “hard at work changing perception of Spain abroad.” And with seven translated works of contemporary Spanish literary fiction published last year (and plans to publish eight next year), Finnigan sees these books, “diverse in their style and content,” as “challenging the stereotype of modern Spain.”

Creating the Future of Ebooks

Creating the Future of Ebooks | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it
In my last two columns I explored what I called the “mess of ebooks” and explained what I want from library ebooks. In this column I want to discuss a possible future that could be good for libraries and for publishers. Right now everything is in flux. Publishers are understandably wary of selling Digital Rights Management (DRM)-free ebooks to libraries, and the patron driven acquisition (PDA) model some libraries want might not be sustainable for publishers. Libraries are struggling to buy books at all. The library ebook market is in a state of flux. There’s opportunity in chaos, though, and the opportunity here is to create a future that’s good for everyone, from publishers to library users.

Summertime Readers Turn Away from e-Books

Summertime Readers Turn Away from e-Books | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it

e-Books were not the format of choice during the summer months, as they only accounted for 21% of all industry sales. The vast majority of readers instead embraced paperback and hardcovers. Paperbacks accounted for 43% of all units sold and hardcover purchases remained fairly steady at 25%. This statistics basically prove that digital still has a way to go before it ever over takes print, and readers would rather wait for the paperback version comes out, instead of paying extra money for the hardcover.
