Authors, you may or may not have heard that Amazon will now begin implementing warning labels to books. The reasoning is to make sure books sold through Amazon meet high standards. It’s their way of quality control. Sounds good, right? No one wants to purchase a book with loads of typos, poor story structure, and bad formatting. Certainly, this new flagging will begin to cull out the bad apples, those people who simply throw up unedited content and/or blurry or pixelated covers with nary a care. Yep, good stuff.
But I’m willing to bet this will backlash negatively on undeserving authors. Especially with this little gem “Content that does not provide an enjoyable reading experience.” Too many trolls out there.
This week’s link is to Amazon’s Guide to Kindle Content Quality.
One last link, just for fun. Suggested Warning Labels.
