Why I Didn't Publish My Book on Kindle

Sunday, November 30, 2014

Even folks who aren't interested in my book on how to price software are fascinated by one of the decisions I made in publishing it. I decided to sell it directly on my website, rather than through Amazon's Kindle program.

Heresy I know! But there are some great reasons to ignore Amazon Kindle for your next non-fiction book:

That is not to say that it's a no-brainer. There are some significant downsides as well.


Did I make the correct decision? I certainly think so.

Using walled gardens such as Amazon is very tempting, but the greatest profits always come from cutting out middlemen and owning one's own sales channels.

Don't forget to grab a copy of my book on establishing a price for your software. It's not on Amazon, but it's a great read. Oh, and don't forget to use my contact page too!
