Buy, Sell, Trade, and Barter / Re: WTB Oberon Purple Cover
« Last post by bobcat51 on Today at 07:17:59 PM »
Thanks Caroline, I am most interested in the Oberon old purple and interested pretty much in any design, style, device. I saw an older posting of the purple paisley and love it, but no luck getting just the cover, and I understand. Will be interested to hear what you may have. You can just send me written listing before you try to send photos if that works for you. Thanks again!
"It is both encouraging and challenging."

I think you should accept the challenge and the encouragement. Despite the outcome, the feedback is amazingly positive.

Thank you for sharing this. I'm coming up to speed on Kindle Scout and I appreciate seeing example communications.

Why should people who pirate books be lumped with those who use their local library?
I don't see what is wrong with borrowing books, which libraries buy (not pirate) with $$$ from subscription and taxes? Borrowing most of my reads from a library allows me to try authors/genres/whatever looks appealing and most likely will be returned unread. I also buy books. Please, don't pigeonhole those who use library with those who pirate books.

I wasn't lumping anyone together. I use the library, too. Libraries are great. I was saying that people who don't pay for books, if they could no longer 'buy' free books, would find other sources of free books, legitimate or not, and if not that, other sources of free entertainment (as I had thought the rest of my sentence made pretty clear). "[People who do this] will [take this action] or [take this other action]" is not at all the same thing as, "[People who do this] and [people who take this action] and [people who take this other action] are all the same." Subject, object, verb, and all that. Stop looking for things to get offended by.

Writers' Cafe / Erotica Store-wide Rankings Missing
« Last post by Dpock on Today at 06:43:02 PM »
It appears erotica lost its store-wide rankings. Does anyone have thoughts on why Amazon decided to do this? I understand it happened on Amazon Germany some time ago.
Will it be as funny as the trailer? I want to see it!

It does look good, doesn't it.
Congratulations! And thank you for setting out your rational; it was very instructive. I do want to say that you already are in a brick and mortar bookstore. When the contract kicks in, will the wholesale price for the print book go down and will a little theater/art/book boutique be able to buy in small quantities? I selected your book for my boutique because I believe firmly that it will continue to be a best seller in whatever format. (Despite the use of snuck.  :P)

There is another terrific Indie book right beside it.  ;D

I think it will be easy to order directly with the new edition. Also: LOOK MY BOOK IS ON THE SHELF. Awesome!

Oh, now come on. Authors can not make a living on one dollar books! They certainly can't on free books! Companies raise the prices of their products when the creation price goes up.

The problem with that argument is no one owes any of us a living. (Aside from the fact some indies have made bundles off of dollar books. Wool.) So if the market in general decides books aren't worth an amount which would pay a writer a living, most of us would find something else to do. Some would persist the way starving artists have done for centuries or the way many traditionally published authors have done more recently - with other jobs in addition to writing.

It works with companies too. If people won't pay for a given product what's necessary for the company to produce it, the company goes out of business. Of course if the government decides that product is necessary for the good of all, it subsidizes the product, so I suppose we all ought to get busy convincing the powers that be that indie books are one of life's necessities. :)

I sent my files but haven't received a confirmation email. I wanted to make sure you got them.

Was it for The Princess Prophecy? I haven't seen any files from you yet on that one. Not in the ol' spam folder either.

The email is
