  1. As an author, I’m very excited about Kindle. It’s going to move publishing into a whole new area, giving back control to many of us who have lost control over their product, to say nothing of the endless frustrations of placing said product. As a reader, it offers me more choices in how I wish to actually read a book. I’ve written a recent blog about this very issue, naysaying the naysayers who are fearful that the print book is dead. Indeed, giving authors and readers more choice can only help not hinder the world of books.

    I’m pleased to be publishing on the Kindle platform and I look forward to a long and fruitful relationship to enhance the one I already have with Amazon for my print editions.

    Viva Amazon!
