    Maybe people aren’t particularly interested in books when the author is listed as Rat.

    Success is all about timing.

    Even my older brother got himself an eBook published on Amazon. “Her Eyes Were in the Star”, only $4.99.

    Easy to get published, hard to let anyone who cares know it is available.

    Publishing is like…well, no, not gonna say it.

    Amazon kept pushing to make my books Ebooks. It’s a fair amount of work to convert them, but that’s not why I didn’t do it.
    ~75% of books are paper. More importantly, I figure at some point, a hacker’s going to break the encryption of Kindle and the other small screen book readers and several million books will suddenly be “public domain.”

    @Nabuquduriuzhur You are aware that this has already been done quite some time ago, right?

    Vanity of vanities, thy name is “I’m a published author!”

    it’s been done. it’s possible to break the encryption for Kindlle books, and for Apple iBooks, and for B&N Nook books. It’s just a major pain to do it, so it’s not popular. the encryption on Microsoft .LIT books was broken so thoroughly and so long ago that it’s now trivial to do it… and MS has abandoned the fight.

    A simple search of torrent sites will net thousands, probably millions, of ebooks. If man encrypts it, man can decrypt it

    This is why my two books were not made into E-books.

    my books have a copyright….all in another name.

    Already broken a long time ago. The good news is that most people don’t torrent everything and you will still get paid. But the reality is they just aren’t going to charge as much in the future and authors aren’t going to make quite as much. Maybe it isn’t “fair” but it is the way of the market.

    @Puddlesplatt McLearn

    I’m glad you mentioned that last part. I was all ready to search Amazon for “Puddlesplatt”…

    Might be interesting to e-publish one and compare sales?

    I like you; I don’t like pathetic, stinky, mud-slinging trolls.
