Seawoman’s 2 cents: Found this really interesting perspective you should read on The Writer’s Ally.com before you pull the trigger. Just a reminder to read the fine print and weigh the pros and cons. Amazon is NOT the only game in town, but it seems to be where most people go when they publish online. I think it’s worth the risk if you’ve already determined Amazon will work for your needs.
