Amazon’s Kindle KDP (i.e. ‘Direct Publishing)’ Is Badly Logjammed.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. I published the Kindle edition 2-days ago.


Just a heads up.

KDP is logjammed.

It is NOW taking 10-days or MORE for ‘Look Inside‘ to get activated. I know. I spoke with them in November about this. Yes, it used to take less than 24-hours. Not now.

Phone support is still available & they REALLY do try. But, what they can do ‘on-the-fly’ is limited. EVERYTHING has to be submitted, in batch mode, to the ‘Back Office’.

Publishing still works. I published the Kindle version of my ‘The Conclave’ book in hours. SMILE.

Doctor Bills $1,004, Medicare Pays $143 — This Travesty Has To Stop!

by Anura Guruge


Whichever way you look at this, it is a TRAVESTY.

Why is the Doctor billing $1,004 if he is willing to settle for $143?

Wouldn’t it be better for all IF he billed say $200 & got paid $200?

Yes, having been there myself, I UNDERSTAND that this does NOT apply to the POOR UNINSURED soul. They will be hounded for the FULL $1,004. Is that FAIR? Of course NOT.

This is what is WRONG with the ENTIRE medical system in the U.S. of A.

This has to be fixed.

This was from 2019 when I busted my knee. They asked for $17,000, they got paid $5,596! CRAZY.
