Reading device "survey"

I just returned to San Diego from a week in MD. On the return flight, which held about 80 passengers, I walked up and down the aisle serveral times. I noticed 4 Kindles and 2 i-Pads. My lightning like math skills tell me that's 7.5% (I think!). Not very high, but better than when I made the trip last year and saw but one lonely Kindle (in a more crowded plane).

The ups and downs of e-publishing

Well, I finally did it. After too many rejections in the increasingly competitive world of real books, I decided to publish my mystery/suspense novel, Tangled Webs, as an e-book on smashwords.com. The best things about e-publishing on this venue are that it's free and they take anything!
