Smashwords: Amazon The Grinch Who Stole Christmas? Amazon Dou...

Panzer was over at Smashwords today and he found an interesting post. Everybody here knows we love Amazon and our Kindle, but the big guy on the block (Amazon) might be getting just a little overbearing with the competition this Christmas season. Amazon plans to add more money to the pot to get authors to leave other ebook sellers and join the exclusive Select program for the Christmas ebook buying season.

Panzer and I have heard stories from indie authors who've managed to have very successful promotions using the Select program. And, we've heard from other authors that their time in Select was a bust. So, I have no opinion about Select. But, I do think locking your book up with only Amazon during the Christmas buying season might be a mistake.

Spend some time exploring your options, then tootle on over to Smashwords: Amazon The Grinch Who Stole Christmas? Amazon Dou...: Will Amazon be the grinch who steals Christmas from thousands of indie authors this holiday season? Last year, a mere three weeks before...
