Hey all… Just a quick note to anyone reading my books on a Kindle e-reader, I am no longer selling books through Amazon. You may, however, continue to purchase the mobi format of all my books at Smashwords. My reasons for this change are many, so I shall not enumerate them here. Just know that all you need at Smashwords is an account (they are free, no membership money or anything like that) and then have the ability to transfer the file to your Kindle (which I think can be done with a USB cable, though I don’t have a Kindle anymore, so you’ll have to double check your user’s guide).
I do apologize for any inconvenience. The majority of my readers do so on devices that use the far more popular (and not proprietary) e-Pub format. I will enable comments on this post, so if you have one THAT RELATES TO ACCESSING MY BOOKS, please leave it here, and I will try to respond in a timely manner. All posts are screened before being visible, so spammers, take heed. Your garbage still will not be available on this website.
ETA: this isn’t to say I will never sell on Amazon again. I just won’t do it until Smashwords and Amazon work out the kinks in whatever that has so far prevented Amazon from being in Smashwords’ premium catalogue. The less time I have to spend with “vendor” issues, the more time I have to write.
