What’s it all about?

Welcome to Fair Maison, a fair market resource for electronic fiction.

Publishing is in flux, and most authors don’t make a lot of money, but what most people don’t know is that authors make varying amounts on the very same book, depending on where we buy it.

See this post by Moira Rogers for an excellent explanation.

When I read that, I thought: Wouldn’t it be nice to find an online resource that featured the novels and stories I want to read — and links to them where the author will get the highest amount from the sale?

At present, when we buy an ebook at Amazon, it takes 65% (that’s not a typo) of the $$ for a Kindle-readable file. I’d rather more money go to the wonderful authors — so they can keep writing more!

This is an experiment, just getting going. Once I get a few books listed, I might even review some.

If you are an author who would like your best-for-you links listed, please tell me about it in the comments. This is a work in progress, everything subject to change.
