  1. Holy smokes. Now THIS kind of stuff scares me.

    And who the heck is paying $5.99 for a short story.?! Even scarier is the fact that I’ve got one of my short stories up for free on my site as a PDF. I guess I need to figure out a way to prevent people doing the same. Maybe making it a JPG or something…

    • Yeah, this is the tip of the iceberg, unfortunately. The vast majority of the world still isn’t using Amazon or e-books, but when they do and find out, really, how easy it is to put up someone else’s work it’s going to be a mad house. Anonymity currently protects a lot of indies, but of course we’re all struggling to get noticed! Ah, irony…

      And…yeah. Who is paying $5.99 for a novel, let alone 21 pages? 🙂

  2. Damn. I hate when this happens. A lot of work goes into writing, whether its a full length book or just a short story. I despise dishonesty. I really hope Amazon does more here otherwise it will cheapen what we’re trying to do.
