Kindle self pubbers take note!
I got a very nice surprise the other day when I downloaded a Kindle freebie, 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover. I opened the book and was greeted with THE COVER. It made me smile. I don't like how all Kindle books default to the first chapter. I mean it's not bad, it saves some clicking. But the first thing you look at when you open a book is the cover and I liked that feeling.
What is even worse though , is when the cover art is entirely absent. One of my $.99 downloads was chosen on the basis of the cover and imagine my dismay when the cover art was not included.
