Isn’t history fascinating?
Would you believe that back in my freelance writing days I used to write case studies of advertising campaigns? It’s true. I used to call lots of corporate librarians and gather information about their employers. And write it up in summary form for an encyclopedia of ad campaigns.
This is what eventually led to my decision to get a degree in library science. That was in 2000. I graduated in 2002, with a perfect 4.0 average, not that it matters much. It’s just a
weird fact about me.
But never mind all that. What I figured I might do is write corporate histories for any company looking to toot their horn or simply explain their corporate philosophy or whatever.
This a short history of Amazon. Based on sources I was able to gather online.

Should I bother to tweet this? 🙂
PS: Frankly, this is a long overdue suggestion, although it could be tricky to enforce.
And good luck trying to convince Amazon to let go of any incentive that ties self-published authors even more to their platform.
In my opinion, any real indie author should own their ISBNs, for the very reasons mentioned in the article. If you own the ISBN, the book is wholly-owned by you, which it is, anyway, but it never hurts to make it as official as possible. I pay for
all the vast majority of my ISBNs. This would be true with or without AI.
No AI was used in creating this post.
And I had no idea Amazon even dealt in providing ISBNs for ebooks.
