*THIS INFORMATION HAS CHANGED IN THE LAST DECADE.
When I first considered Kindle I refused it, as it seemed too hard and I heard and read bad things in the kindle forums where there were
troubles with payments and people not getting help. So, I decided to go with Smashwords for ALL of my eBook formats, however, sales have been slow, and I always had this inkling that it was because I had not published on Kindle. I just relied upon the Kindle format through Smashwords to get me through.
