New place to get e-books
Monday last week a nice lady at Amazon.com wrote me an e-mail to inform me that a customer of Mobipocket books was complaining that there was no content for My Life Story By Tom M. A Recovering Alcoholic. She also provided me with the link to the new Amazon.com KINDLE e-book thing and the instructions and software to upload the books. She said that 4 of my 6 novels on Mobi-pocket had blank content. I wanted to apologize to the "buyer" and send him a free book but alas, that data was long gone. When I had first started with my books as e-books at Mobi-pocket books, I read the reviews and they basically said it was awkward and difficult to upload and to see. They were right but a year ago, I persevered and, at least I thought, uploaded 6 novels. Well, there were 6 covers but only 2 books had content. I had tested the uploaded files with mobi-pocket reader too. After the information from Amazon, I tried again and failed to upload content. A similar thing happened to me with LULU.com a year and a half ago. I though I'd coded the books correctly to be available for sale to the public but had missed one of the coding places so none were available and of course none were sold. When Lulu.com notified me of the possible error and instructed me what to do, I did it and right away the books started selling. No not huge quantities, but at least some books got sold and the site visit stats available to author showed that I was getting visits. Yeah. Success of a sort. So, this new Kindle thing is nice, the woman at Amazon.com was very helpful and now I will just wait for further improvements.
