Review: Neogenesis (EARC) by Sharon Lee & Steve Miller
by Chris Meadows
22 Sep 2017 at 11:58pm
Just yesterday Neogenesis, the latest EARC in the Liaden Universe series by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller came out. And, I’m happy to say, I’ve finished reading it. EARCs, if you aren’t familar, are a publishing innovation pioneered by Baen. ARC stands for “Advance Reader Copy,” which is a pre-publication, unproofed version of the book […]


As Amazon competition heats up, bricks and mortar and online retail increasin...
by Chris Meadows
20 Sep 2017 at 8:08pm
The other day, my Facebook friend Kevin McKeever called my attention to a news story (warning: autoplaying video) on the Toys R Us affair. It seems that at about the same time as I posted my previous article speculating on Toys R Us’s impending bankruptcy, Toys R Us went ahead and filed for it. The […]


The reborn 10.1? Amazon Fire: A promising ebook reader at $150
by David Rothman
19 Sep 2017 at 8:20am
I never took the old 10.1″ Amazon Fire tablet seriously as an ebook reader. The resolution of 1280 by 800 sucked on a screen that large. But the just-announced 2017 revision, the “all-new Fire HD 10,” offers a 1920-by-1200 pixel display. The weight is 17.7 ounces, a little heavy for some, but this still looks […]


Looming Toys R Us bankruptcy has odd parallels to Barnes & Noble?s situation
by Chris Meadows
18 Sep 2017 at 10:01pm
I just ran across a CNBC piece on a potential Toys’R’Us bankruptcy filing. The toy retailer may not necessarily plan to go out of business, but a bankruptcy filing could allow it to restructure its massive load of debt so it can stay in operation. At first glance, this doesn’t seem to have a whole […]


Google adds local library ebook listings to search results
by Chris Meadows
18 Sep 2017 at 7:14pm
The Verge reports that Google has added local library ebook listingsto its standard search interface when searching on books. It works, too. When I search on a book I know that my local public library does carry in ebook format on my phone (that being Grumpy Old Rock Star, a frequently hilarious book of anecdotes […]


Amazon removes 900 one-star reviews of Hillary Clinton?s new book
by Chris Meadows
17 Sep 2017 at 10:19pm
Remember how I discussed the contentious issue of one-star reviews on Amazon and other sites a few months back? I just ran across a demonstration of how Amazon deals with those now. Quartz reports that Amazon just deleted over 900 one-star reviews of Hillary Clinton’s new book,What Happened. That’s over half the total number of […]


Could Amazon come to Indianapolis?
by Chris Meadows
17 Sep 2017 at 6:38pm
In a way, Amazon alreadyis in Indianapolis. We’re a regional logistics hub, with lots of Amazon warehouses out near the airport. I’ve met and spoken to people who work there. That’s why we have the Amazon Prime Now same-day delivery service, and also why my new Fire HD 8 tablet arrived less than 24 hours […]


Smashwords announces new taboo classification scheme for erotica
by Chris Meadows
16 Sep 2017 at 4:12pm
Mark Coker at Smashwords is no stranger to controversy arising from publishing erotica. A few years ago, he famously fought back against PayPal’s attempt to limit what categories of work he could publish, and ended up prevailing. Today he announced a new initiative Smashwords is taking concerning erotica publication. From this point forward, authors will […]


Fire HD 8 first look: Google Play installs easily!
by Chris Meadows
12 Sep 2017 at 8:07pm
Sometimes it’s really pretty nice living in a city that also hosts a major Amazon distribution center. Sunday night, I decided to order one of the 16 GB Fire HD 8 models on sale this week from Amazon. Less than 24 hours later, it arrived on my porch, at no extra charge for the speedy […]

Amazon is taking $15 off the 7″ Fire 7, or $25 off the 8″ Fire HD 8. The Prime-only offer applies to both […]


R.I.P. Carly Rothman?lover of library ebooks, Jimmy Dean sausage biscuits, an...
by David Rothman
3 Sep 2017 at 4:06pm
When Carly and I were among strangers, we would sometimes hold hands, gaze into each other’s eyes as if newlyweds, and tell gawkers: “It’s ok. We’ve only been married two days. We’ll get over it.”Of course, we never did—not in 26 years of marriage. My wife was an easy love, affectionate, caring, loyal, even-tempered, and […]

Andrew Albanese at Publishers Weekly and Eriq Gardner at the Hollywood Reporter offer their takes on the matter (found via The Digital Reader and The Passive Voice, […]

by Chris Meadows
24 Aug 2017 at 7:53pm
If you thought Gen Con was just a gaming convention, you would be wrong. In addition to gaming, its Gen Con Writers Symposium features a huge programming track devoted to writing, editing, and publishing, with industry professionals holding roundtable panel discussions to share their wisdom with aspirants to their profession. In fact, I’ve never seen […]
