Ebooks from Progressive Press
Note: Amazon is taking a double bite (an extortionist 65%!) out of some sales from outside the US, leaving authors only about $1 per ebook sold.
If you are outside the US and can order from another channel, we would be grateful.
In the US, too, indie distributor Smashwords takes only half as much as the 30-35% Amazon or BN take. Smashwords offer all formats, including Kindle, Epub and many others.
By purchasing ebooks from Smashwords, you save money, and give the author and publisher the fairest remuneration for our work.
You can also preview the first 20% of our e-books for free on Smashwords.

There's more to Amazon's grab for royalties. They offer a way out of the 65% royalty scam -- by giving them a monopoly on your work, under their "KDP Select Program. "Books enrolled in KDP Select must not be available in digital format on any other platform during their enrollment. If your book is found to be available elsewhere in digital format, it may not be eligible to remain in the program." If we had any antitrust enforcement at all, this would immediately be cause for a billion-dollar suit by the Justice Department for attempting -- and succeeding -- to monopolize the E-book market.
