Publishing Woes: Why Google, Why?
Dear Google Play,
I would love to get my catalog on your site. You seem so friendly and awesome. I think you really have something there--being able to buy books on my phone--and well, I'd like to participate as a publisher.
But you make things really kinna hard. I mean, you're no iTunes or B&N but I think you're making it a bit more difficult than it really has to be.
Is it because I'm new? I know I'm fresh meat, but I'd really love a hand here. Reading on mobile is the future (more on that next week) and it's imperative I get on there.
But your help section is not help. Unless help is a spiral into frustration, pleading, hair-pulling, searching over-and-over-and-over-and-over times a billion to find how to fix what you want me to fix in which you don't really say what you want me to fix you just stare at me like Forrest Gump with nothing to say--there's no help.
I have a snickers bar. Can I tempt you with candy? I can't even pull on your shirt sleeve to ask anything. Why, Google, why? You're going to consume eBooks very soon because your on every smart phone in the universe. You going to become the Amazon of eBooks.
But not if we can't get our books on your site.
ACTION ITEM: Throw tomatoes at Google until they respond. :)
