eBook Sales increase in May

Publishers Weekly reported on a 2.4% increase in eBook sales in May of 2017 for the first time in two years.

The eBook format has a loyal following that is only encouraged as the legacy publishers remember the highly profitable early days of the eBook Revolution and begin dropping their digital prices accordingly. Those publishers left a lot of money on the table when they started overpricing eBook titles to drive readers back to paper.

Well, the money’s still waiting.

Amazon Games Publishing/Publishing Games Amazon

Quartz writes about how some criminals, “authors” and “publishers” have scammed Amazon’s Indie publishing system by providing fake reviews, fake reads and fake statistics. All so that Amazon does not have to just sell you an eBook outright and pay the author a fair royalty.

A proprietary system like Amazon Kindle’s that attempts to control the reader and the author by selling you rights to read an eBook rather than sell it to you deserves to be gamed.
