Kindle Direct Publishing Newsletter - Kudos to Amazon

For those of you who read this blog and have published Kindle editions of your CreateSpace or LSI books, you have probably already received your inaugural edition of the Kindle Direct Publishing Newsletter from Amazon. 

In the first issue of this new venture, Amazon also announces a name change, the Digital Text Platform has a new name, Kindle Direct Publishing. 

While many Kindle authors will probably hit the delete key, I plan to read each issue when it arrives electronically each month. Amazon deserves some credit for communicating formally with its Kindle authors. Bezos and his employees may not share trade secrets in the newsletter, but direct communication between Amazon's Kindle division and its authors has to be a good thing.
