After less than scintillating results on, well, every e-book retail outlet except Amazon, I was inspired to create what is quite possibly the worst drawn cartoon in the world.
I would be more charitable to Amazon’s competition if:
- Smashwords could assure me that they’d actually ship the e-books I ask them to.
- Barnes & Noble wouldn’t blame Smashword’s staff for not having my books on their site.
- Apple actually acted like books were sold online.
- Kobo improved a search engine that displays a search of “iden, matthew” on Page 2 and Page 3 of the results. And created some sort of system whereby indies could compete with Trad Pub titles.
Until then, it’s probably back to Select for me, like every other indie author except Bob Mayer.
