What is Copyright Page of the Book?

JA Konrath broke down how to best construct the interior of an ebook this morning, and the one piece I have to contend with is what to put at the end:

amazon review page

12. Copyright page. Why put that in the front matter when people skip over it and it takes up sample space?

He’s put this out there before, and if you own the current versions of any of my books, you know I’ve followed the advice – it makes perfect sense.

My reasoning is somewhere in the same family, ie nobody’s reading it, so why make it the first or second thing they see?

Similar to a YouTube vid or even a blog post, don’t give people a chance to click away. Silly as it sounds, the copyright statement does this.

I’ve done it.

He suggests putting what is essentially your back cover copy first, since many people buy ebooks on a whim, only to forget what is was or why they picked it up months later.

(I’ve also done this, but not so often that I need to italicize it.)

So this is all great – it was the perfect ebook formatting…until the other day.

That’s when Amazon quietly updated their Kindle apps to automatically make the following show up after the last page of your book:
