Amazon’s KDP is Enforcing Their Exclusivity

ABC LRC/Flickr I received an email today from Amazon.  They wanted to inform me that two of my digital books were also found on Barnes & Noble and needed to be removed.  I knew they were there and had read the KDP Select information when it first came out, but I didn’t pay much mind […]

Amazon’s Free Promotion Results

How is anyone supposed to find my book? I found out about free eBook promotions when I noticed a friend did it with one of her books.  It seemed like a great way to get your books into people’s hands (well, digital devices), so I decided to rotate three of my books into promotions.  After […]
