Not everyone is convinced Kindle version of a book is the way to go. Here are three reasons not to go Kindle version.
- Not everyone will buy the Kindle version of your book.

So which side of the Kindle fence are you on? As I write the manuscript for my soon-to-be-released book I know I will be offering it both in paperback and Kindle version. I would be a fool not to. And my mama didn’t raise no fool.
The fact is, if you are an author, or soon to be author, you definitely need to get into the Kindle game. Unfortunately, there are old time thinking authors and independent publishers who will try to convince you otherwise.
All you have to do is check the facts. And the facts are, Kindle is one of the most incredibly easy ways to reach your current and potential readers, the deliverability is fabulous and your readers are demanding this more every day.
