If you want to build up a collection of great ebooks on your Kindle without spending a dime, Red Ferret has a simple but neat trick using Amazon’s individual RSS feeds and our favourite web automator, IFTTT.
Amazon now has an Australian Kindle bookstore, which raises one big question: are you better off using that than the original US store? For one perspective on the issue, we’ve compared availability and pricing for the current top 10 selling books in Australia.
Amazon is making its biggest push yet into the Australian market, launching an Amazon.com.au site for its Kindle content, offering pricing for books and apps in Australian dollars and opening up its Kindle Directing Publishing self-publishing platform to local authors. What does the change involve and is it worth switching to the Australian store? Find out in our in-depth launch guide.
Fan-fiction — amateur books and stories based on established authors’ characters and worlds — is a hugely popular pastime among people with too much time on their hands. Sites like Fanfiction.net regularly receive thousands of submissions a week ranging from Dr. Who/Transformers crossovers to the further adventures of Anne Frank (no really). Now, Amazon wants to pay fanfic writers to publish their derivative “creations” on the Kindle Store. That’s right — your Gossip Girl magnum opus is about to be legitimised.
