Important Self-Publishing News
Amazon cracks down on quality of content
As of February 3rd all eBooks offered for Amazon Kindle that have been reported to include typos, formatting issues, or other mistakes that lead to a poor reader experience will be removed from Amazon until the mistakes in question have been fixed. Readers attempting to purchase a title that has been reported to contain errors will be confronted with a message stating “Item under Review”, and the title will not be available for purchase.
What this means for you: Finding a great editor and proper formatting of your eBook just became even more important. There are a variety of repercussions here, including the failure of a marketing plan if your book is taken down in the middle of a paid promotion.
However, this is good news. The market is saturated with sub-standard books which will hurt the overall marketplace. There needs to be some form of quality control.
This is one of many reasons why you need a publisher such as Empire Publishing to professionally produce your book.
