Yeah, okay. It's getting into bed with the "enemy", or it least in as much as getting into bed with a company more interested in (it seems) stretching it's own profits as far as they will go instead of quickly removing the library of a know plagiarist. Then again what makes that different from any other job?
No, I'm not happy with Amazon, but as far as being published their Kindle does seem to be the best avenue. All third party e-book publishers are filled with the craziest restrictions and are so clicky that it isn't even funny. I've browsed subjects and looked at reviews on books Amazon is selling that cater to just as many "deviant" sex practices as Xnxx or Storiesonline, so My stories would actually be somewhat tame as the subjects of several erotic novels they are selling include underage incest, beastiality, adults with underage sex partners, etc. (In other words stuff that I was reading from King and Johnstone in the 90s that most legit erotic story sites won't touch).
I want to go to the next level, and in this economy if it takes getting published through Amazon to put a few extra dollars in My bank account then I will do it. However, and more importantly, My goal since March of last year was to reach a broader audience, and being associated with a more mainstream site would certainly get My works exposed to a larger potential audience at the very least.
So, despite My differences, as I have with the story submission sites I have worked with over the past year, I am willing to put those differences with Amazon aside and test the waters to see if e-book publishing will be benificial in filling My need to tell a story to as many people as possible and maybe reap a slight financial benefit as well.
So, in the words of Monkey D. Luffy, "GEAR SECONDO!"
