I know what you mean. I'm pretty much as new as it gets too, so I don't quite know if readers would trust my work past a 0.99 impulse buy. I'd like to try pricing my longer works at 2.99 once I've built a bit of a name for myself, though.

Writers' Cafe / Is this an appropriate cover for a poetry anthology?

It's a link because when I tried just displaying the image by URL it took up over half my monitor. A little distracting for a forum post.  :P

I'm a little worried about the title composition. I know you don't see too many titles positioned at the bottom of the cover, but I really liked this image, and it seemed like the least busy part of the picture.

I also worry that the cover is a bit too "cool" for a Psuedo-haiku anthology. All my beta readers described the poems as "strange" or just plain old "weird", though, and I thought the cover represented that pretty well.

Welcome from a fellow newbie! :D

I feel the same way about the Fire. I really miss my e-ink reader. I got the Kindle Fire as a gift from my family, though, and I'd feel so rude just swapping it out.

 Thank so much for welcoming me :D I can't wait to meet more friends.

Great Scott, I'm cheesy.

Writers' Cafe / Re: Cory Doctorow on "Doubling Down on DRM"

Oh, Lord. I never belong in these DRM. I detest it and always have, and I don't think that piracy harms writers as much as my fellow penjockies are convinced it does. I've been on the Pirate Bay, Demonoid, and all (or at least most) of those sites. Books are a lot harder to find than you'd think. In my experience, most people who show up knocking on the Pirate Bay's door are looking for music, movies, and software. The only books that are widely pirated are textbooks and computer programming type instructional books.

I imagine some people who pirate just don't have access to or knowledge of a legal lending source.

I agree! Most of the time that's the case. People who pirate are generally those who wouldn't have bought the product they're pirating, anyway. I don't have a local bookstore or library, but I was never a book pirate. Sitting at a bright computer screen for hours at a time reading a book just doesn't sound fun, and I think the vast majority of people agree. Pirating (especially doing so without getting caught) is hard work. I'm too lazy to go through all the trouble. That's why I was overjoyed when I got my kindle and could go book shopping from home.

Considering America is 46th on the list for literacy rates, shouldn't we be encouraging people to read instead of punishing them?


After lurking on so many writing forums I was worried I was the only one who thought that way!  ;D

I am new and also strange :)

I love my Kindle more than life itself (I'd walk around with it sewn to my arm if that wouldn't hurt), and I thought I'd find some like-minded people here ;)
