~*WARNING*~ If you are self publishing your books online, thinking about publishing them, or know someone who is. Please read this as it contains a factual fiscal rape that should serve as a warning to all novelists involved with, or are thinking of getting involved with Amazon.
For those of you who don’t know, don’t care, or just happened to stumble upon this tiny chunk of the internet. I am the author of five novels, they were published online during the last few months through Smashwords.com and Amazon.com and at least a few of my books appear in a great many of the major e-book retailers. I originally published through Smashwords and then on a whim extended my books onto Amazon through their KDP program, THIS WAS A MISTAKE.
