    This ebook thing is expensive!!!

    Kobo's good, but I tend to stick with Amazon and sometimes Smashwords for my purchases. I like the fact that Kindle is available for a lot of platforms.

    This ebook thing is expensive!!!

    Thanks!! I started out with it for just the children's novel (Scourge) because I thought kids would get a kick out of seeing their name in the book, but started offering it for The Second Coming as well. Being an indie author gives me the freedom to do that from my site. If I had traditionally...

    This ebook thing is expensive!!!

    What you just cited was a prime example of what a number of us in the publishing world have been saying. The publishing companies that aren't "getting it" are going to put themselves out of existence in the not too distant future if they don't start changing their practices. It drives me nuts to...

That inconvenience and high price led to a lot of piracy (remember Napster?). I'd like to hope...

    What are using your iPad for that you didn't expect?

    When I got it I was expecting to be able to primarily read books, watch youtube, and listen to music. I'm amazed at what I can do with it now since apps like Flipboard, Evernote, Dropbox, Goodreader, Good for Enterprise (corporate email), the social networking tools, the various ebook reader...

    This ebook thing is expensive!!!

    Strangely it's not most authors that don't want readers to pick ebooks, it's more the publishers because it doesn't help their paper business. That's also why most traditional publishers are charging so much for ebooks. And what irks me is when I see a hardback cheaper than the ebook. Grr. That...

    Two dads, five siblings, and goggles! Grim Doyle has always known his life was not exactly "normal", and things get even more curious when he discovers a set of stones that sweep him and his family to the fantasy, steampunk world of Verne - a place they had escaped from years ago. Now that...

    LogMeIn? Awesome sauce! We use Citrix Receiver at work and it's brilliant, but for home use I didn't realize LogMeIn was on there. Thanks!
