Yesterday, I said that I would have an e-book version of How to Play a Character & Other Essays up by Friday, and I have had a few people express their wish for this.
Let it be known, however, that the self-publishing industry for e-books is a Kindle, Amazon & Apple scam. We are still in the Betamax era for e-books, and e-book readers are still a proprietary format hell where it comes to simply transferring the same electronic content that works on every other format system in existence.
This is because the priests want their pound of flesh before anyone can put up content on their special snowflake distribution technology.
As such, I am finding that the format system has changed, and that what Lulu wants me to do now is to have Lulu put my work in e-book format for me. This will cost me hundres of dollars, because it is a scam. It obviously does not cost hundreds of dollars to change the format of a file. Everyone on the planet knows this. But it is proprietary technology, and the priests see me coming.
So. Be it know. I may NOT put this book in e-book format. I am working to see if I can find a workaround. I'll let it be known by Friday if I can or can't. For the record, however, I don't care if this book is an e-book. It exists to help me raise money. I'm not dropping bullshit money on a bullshit proprietary priesthood.
