Why Writers Should Consider ePublishing
"Admittedly, the eReader audience is just now developing, which is exactly why now is a good time to get established with an ePublisher. It’s a time of wild experimentation and figuring out what works."
(And this is a good thing?)

How To choose an ePublisher
"Choose a publisher in the genre you write in. If you write romance books, you may want to submit your work to an ePublisher that specializes in romance."
(Gee, thanks. I would never have thought of that).

My Happy Place
"The real world full of bad cover art and bad editing and fly by night ePublishers out to rip off new writers and crank out as much shit and improbable promises as possible before they head out for the next gullible target. Yeah, that real world."
(This is why Teddypig needs a happy place. I wonder where I can get one?)

EPIC’s 11th Annual e-Book Competition Opens
"...book award that could has grown from 15 categories to 35 and has become something of a household name in the industry."
(And yet it is still completely unknown to the average ebook reader...)

Well yeah, but how many dead tree readers know what the Rita is? Not that I'm comparing an Eppie to a Rita, I think the Eppie's are a joke, but not because e-readers don't know about it. Few readers in any genre ever know about the awards inside the industry.

You can borrow mine. It has pretty cover art.
