    Did you know that there already were other successful crowd sourced publishing platforms? I came across it when I was looking for books to add to my Christmas list. It’s called Swoon Reads and it just published it’s first novel called “A Little Something Different” by Sandy Hall. Amazon is not the first to try this technique.

  2. Yes, that’s a good point, Courtney–Amazon, is far from a pioneer in this respect. Even Kickstarter helps to fund books. Yet Amazon Scout promises to bring an unprecedented scale to crowdsourced publishing.
