I don't know; should I? Keith got me an android phone for Christmas and I love the Kindle app I downloaded on it. I also bought a free copy of Little Women from Amazon.co.uk and I have been reading it avidly on my phone, but the idea of putting my own titles onto Kindle has, so far, left me thinking, mmmm, dunno...
Coming from a library background, I'm still a bit cynical about ebooks. Most library users I know like to see their information in print format. It's very difficult to read on screen, but then we're talking non-fiction and academia, for novels I suppose it's a different story. Personally, though, I like the physical copy in my hand, and it's very satisfying indeed to see your book in print with a real cover.
Then there are authors saying to me, 'You'll get more sales with Kindle!' It seems to be working for them, why not for me? But I write for children and young adults. Do they use Kindle? I'll have to find out how popular it is with them. There's another problem: Kindle is limited only to Amazon. I don't promote my books in e-format anywhere else. I've decided to make my earlier titles Goalden Girl and Abbie's Rival available on Kindle, and of course I would market them as being available there, but I would like people to be able to buy them in other stores, too. I worry that even with VAT for an electronic resource, readers will only buy the Kindle editions because they happen to be slightly cheaper, when I'm doing all I can to make the printed editions as cheap as possible.
Meanwhile, Big Brother is developing into a bizarre, creepy kind of sci-fi tale that it's even beginning to scare me! I'm finding it hard to balance a full-time job with writing so I try to make notes when I can. Of course I write a lot at the weekend. I've also re-established my Google adwords campaign to advertise my site and get more people to see my books.
