The world of e-publishing and social media just got a tiny bit more connected.

Amazon KDP Kindle Direct PublishingKDP Amazon (Kindle Direct Publishing) now has a Facebook page. Actually its been there for 4 weeks, but they just informed me the BIG news yesterday. (Dogs and cats have Facebook pages, so it’s a tad surprising it took KDP Amazon until July 2011 but still a good thing.) From their newsletter:

    Smashwords does a better job than amazon (amateur) e-book seller.

    How come amazon doesn’t have a list of authors with their genres and book titles?

    Smashwords does.

    Okay, so Smashwords demands you have a book cover with the title and author name.

    No problem. For $9.95 you can print and download covers like that at . You can even use your own cover.

    Amazon doesn’t care about it’s authors. Books and e-books play only a small part of their product line.

    Are you one of the 100% on facebook? No! Then see Garalt Canton and read his posts.
