In the 1990’s if you searched for eBooks or FREE eBooks you saw a dominant site 1 eBooks.
10 years or so ago, the main eBook site for 1 eBooks was stolen in the Register Fly fiasco where many thousands of websites were lost by owners when RF kept their registration fees and didn’t renew owners names.
Since the commercial internet began around 1995, Adoni Publishing and its founder SOL ADONI have distributed millions of ebooks.
Now 1 eBooks has been relaunched and it’s 100K range USA Alexa shows they have quickly gotten a lot of traffic very fast, they only relaunched the site like a week or two ago, so their meteoric rise to a 100K USA Alexa is remarkable.
Now the retired honorary chairman of Adoni Publishing, SOL ADONI, has come down from his mountain and explained how stupid authors and publishers really are for creating what SOL ADONI calls a new SLAVERY AGREEMENT between authors/publishers and the big 3 ebook channels being Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Apple.
That is the rant of SOL ADONI.
He makes some great points, authors and publishers are creating all the content and pages that drive traffic to the big 3, then the big 3 piss all over the work of the authors and publishers by offering dozens of other books, a slap in the face to the real workers that then only get 35% of the sales over $9.99 on the big 3 networks for ebooks.
What is clear is that 1 eBooks has once again created a busy eBook portal and their business model is simple, let authors and publishers list their titles with no real ads for other ebooks on the pages and let the traffic on these pages go to authors and publishers pages so the authors and publishers can keep all of the sales and not give the big 3 ebook channels up to 70% of the sale.
Will authors and publishers go for it?
It doesn’t really matter to SOL ADONI, since the portal features his own books and the books of authors in the Adoni Stable.
Plus there’s the plethora of thousands of titles of public domain authors which has always powered 1 eBooks.
There’s a reason Sol Adoni is saying AUTHORS ARE MORONS PUBLISHERS ARE MORONS.
