    I absolutely love this and will use this as an example in a future blog post. Here’s why I love this. I wrote, published and sold and ebook all by myself about five years ago. This is before Kindle books, Kindles, publishing anything on Amazon that wasn’t a paperback. I was so proud of myself. Here I was able to make money off the Internet and it basically cost me nothing to start up but my time. I made my own cover also…gotta agree with you about unprofessional covers. Covers draw people to books no matter what anyone says. I wish you much success with this and I’d for you to do a follow up in a few months on how it’s going?

    Congratulations – this is great news. I know a lot of poets who are wary of eBooks for the formatting reason you mentioned, but I’ve been telling them that while everyone is focusing on the problem, forward-thinking, creative people will be looking at the possibilities and making a name for themselves in a quiet marketplace. Good luck with it.

    I’m just so excited for you! It’s tough selling a book of poetry anyway but I’m coming across authors too many to count who are selling thousands of their ebooks at Amazon through the Kindle program. so encouraging!

    I’m put off by the price of most poetry books, as even though the page count is typically low, the bulk of the production cost is consumed by the setup and cover costs. Despite the perceived limitations of eBooks as a delivery format for poetry, the low price points available to the DIY publishing poets could open wider markets that just aren’t there in print.
