Send to Kindle on the Mac seems to always get the author wrong on mobi uploads. I purchase books from a variety of publishers (partly to get PDF versions of technical books -- sometimes the figures don't make sense after being reformatted for mobi / epub).
When I use Send to Kindle on the Mac (OSX Mavericks), the Author field contains the author of the previous upload, not the current book. This even happens if I reboot the mac in between. It doesn't matter if I open the app and drag a file to it, right click a .mobi file and select the "Send to Kindle..." Service.
If I manually change the author before hitting Send, it correctly uses my typed value and remembers that value for the next upload.
Why can't they locate the author field in their own bloody file format?
