About Nate Hoffelder (11598 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. The Marcy Kennedy article (6 Key Terms) is an eyeopener in the sense that it reconfirms that when publishing with Amazon, you have to keep your fingers crossed and keep repeating the mantra “Amazon is my friend and will do me no harm.” You have liability they do not even though they can do whatever they want and you have no say in the matter. Gotta love those kinds of friends — they look you square in the eye as they shaft you. At least they can’t change what they owe you for past sales — at least that is true today.

    Truthfully, I’m surprised that authors view this as a great deal; if they don’t, they sure are quiet about not liking it. They’d be screaming bloody murder if Random House had the same contract.

    Once again Tendra with a curmudgeonly post. His life is just sooooo hard, conferences are bad. WHY does this wanker keep on writing?
