    You make several good points Nabuquduriuzhur, but I would take issue with this one:

    “Nabuquduriuzhur said, about 11 hours ago:The downside is they don’t have an organization that advertises the books. The upside is that one generally doesn’t see the mediocre trash put out by the large publishers.”

    Have you SEEN the tide of self-published trash out there? I’m not just talking about poor spelling and punctuation, either. Childish, poorly constructed dialog, absent character development, gaping plot holes… the list goes on and on.

    I use my Kindle to explore indie authors I might not have seen otherwise, but I have been disappointed many times. Often, a ‘preview’ is available from Amazon, and I thank the gods for that, as well as the free or low priced titles of a new author; but with a published book in a bookstore, you ALWAYS have the preview option. And smaller presses still put out interesting and engaging titles.
