Musing Monday's - November 17, 2014

TC is in the sun musing about the chipmunk she sees out the window.
Hopefully that is all she does.  So far this month she has presented me
 with two chipmunks - one alive and one dead but both in my bedroom.
Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week.Musing Mondays is sponsored by Should Be Reading.
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to talk about 
something else.  

I just finished reading The Kraken King, Iron Seas Book #4, by
Meljean Brook.  What I purchased was the Kindle ebook for 7.99.  I have followed this series from book #1 and really enjoyed each book. What made The Kraken King a little different was how it was first published.  It came out as an 8 part Kindle serial with each part priced at $1.99.  I saw and resisted.  Now all eight parts have been released as a print book for $12.50 or a Kindle Edition for $7.99. Doing the math if I had purchased this in the serial form I would have paid 8 x $1.99 or $15.99 and I think I might have been very angry when it came out for $7.99.

I think this is an example of an author or a publisher being very unfair to readers.  Nowhere was it ever stated that the serial would be published in book form.  What do you think?
