I’ve been following the Amazon forum Voice of the Author/Publisher for a few months, reading much, replying seldom, learning and drawing conclusions. It troubles me that forum rules appear to restrict the authors/publishers—in other words, the Indie Authors—to endless discussions of the value of reviews, the iniquities of the rating structure on Amazon and how to find the perfect cover to make our books bestsellers. Are we really so shallow, only interested in ourselves?
Maybe. I just know there are no posts about Charlie Hebdo on KDP Voice of the Author/Publisher, and the one I put up the morning of January 11, 2015 vanished before the virtual ink was even dry! So I’ll post it here. Because…it matters.
