Wowio

Wowio is supposedly a rather good way for webcartoonists to get their e-books out and even make a bit of money through the advertising Wowio embeds in the e-books, but when I try to sign up so I can try it out and see how it works, I get this. Boo hiss.

Ironically, their About us page says:


WOWIO opened on the World Wide Web in August 2006 endeavoring to dramatically expand access to important written works by eliminating the economic, geographic, and logistical barriers of readers while also ensuring that content owners are fairly compensated.

Looks like they've got a long way to go then. They also require authentication for downloaders of the free e-books and limit the number of downloads per day. On the whole, I prefer the system that Joey Manley's Modern Tales uses. How about rolling out this feature for Webcomicsnation, Joey?
