Interesting news has been abounding in the last week.  First, Amazon announced the purchase of Goodreads.  While I will admit to a bit of fear that Amazon is moving closer to  monopolizing the market, I’m going to take a wait-and-see approach.  I am somewhat hopeful that there will be a benefit to my book sales, but I’m also not so tied to the idea of profits that I don’t recognize the loss of autonomy.

The other interesting news is still ambiguous.  Barnes and Noble notified Pubit authors that there was big news coming . . . but offered no details.  My books aren’t currently available on Nook, as I’ve been playing around with Amazon’s KDP Select (which requires that your work is not available elsewhere), but they will be again soon.

With both of these, all we can do is wait and see what the real impacts are.
