Mercy Pilkington and Michael Kozlowski are live with a breaking news audio edition of the Good e-Reader Radio Show. Today, they talk about all of the news surrounding Sony and Kobo joining forces on eBooks and how it affects indie authors and self-publishing distribution platforms, such as Smashwords.
This is a jam packed show with tons of news and exclusives. Many companies spoke to Good e-Reader today about the merger between Sony and Kobo’s ecosystems and we lay it out, on what it all really means for readers all over the world. Mercy discusses some of the pitfalls surrounding on a USA wide digital library and why it is failing and how Norway gets it right with their government funded approach. Finally, Bro-mies? Bro-Bras? We lay out how Fan-Fiction is taking over the world and some of the more interesting moves coming out of Amazon.
This is one of the funnest shows in Good e-Reader History! If you have always wanted to see Cobra Commander win the day, listen to this show, immediately!
