Color Me Jealous

First Amazon announces that they sold more Kindle books last quarter than hardcovers.

Then they announce that authors can receive 70% royalties on books published directly to the Kindle (that’s compared to the standard 10-18%).

And then they release a Kindle Reader that just about anyone can afford.

I’m sure that some kind soul will buy me one…

    At the very least, perhaps some kind soul can follow your referral link and help out a starving author.

      Yes, David, that would be the VERY least that someone could do. :-)

    That’s alright, Tony. I’m still waiting also.

    Of course, if you only want Amazon to have your book, then you can publish directly with them. Ask Amazon when they will put out a Kindle in four-color and then you can really make books that are media enhanced. I don’t think they will compete with Apple on that level for quite awhile.
