The Hidden Gems Author Podcast

Episode 38 - Industry Issues and News - October 2022

Hosted by: Craig Tuch and Roland Hulme

As a semi-regular ongoing feature of Fully Booked, Hidden Gems covers news, issues or rumors that affect authors and publishing in general. Today, Craig and Roland are following up on a few issues we’ve previously discussed in blogs and on podcasts, plus one newly announced Amazon product.

  1. Amazon finally bows to industry pressures and announces planned changes designed to make their eBook return policy more restrictive and less likely to be abused
  2. Quick update to Vellum ePub kindle files – previous format issues have all been completely resolved
  3. Quick update on Send to Kindle ePub support
  4. Our thoughts on Kindle Scribe, the latest eReader device announced by Amazon that includes a stylus. Is this something people really want or need?
