The reason why this frustrates me is that I put such a premium on quality and good content. I suppose “good content” is subjective, but I still think “quality” is important, with a clean, organized look to my finished products.
With Kindle, uploading one of my e-books is finicky, because formatting the e-book so it actually looks presentable to people is tough. Loading the content is slow, and then when I find a mistake, I have to reload it again, rinse and repeat style, until I get the finished product the way I want it. Due to the limited time I have now with traveling and writing and whatever else, I’ve gotten to the point where I just upload the document to Kindle without really giving a rats ass as to what the finished product looks like. So, when I saw the “refund,” that frustrated me, because I knew it was my own fault.
But, because I don’t really have the time to spend an extra hour making sure the formatting is perfect, I guess I thought I’d take a survey before I just stop publishing on Amazon or make more of an effort to format: is Kindle worth it? How do you guys read my e-books? Is there a better format that I should use?
I don’t want downloading / reading my e-books to be an issue, but I also don’t want to focus on something like Kindle when nobody really cares anyway. So let me know. Again, I hate half-assed efforts, but unfortunately the combination of difficult formatting and limited time has almost forced me to just upload it and move on.
Take care all.
