I don't pay enough attention to the business of writing as I should, but now I'm just completely furious at Amazon for it's latest trick. As most of you know, I don't go through a traditional publisher, instead Publishing through Lulu, a print-on-demand (POD) service, which is at least honest about what I'm doing.
Amazon has announced that it will no longer provide sales services for POD books... unless you use their print service, BookSurge. They will not sell books printed by Lulu or Lightning. Writers Weekly has confirmed this, and supporting articles have appeared in the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal.
I'm not buying a damn thing from Amazon until they back off this punk stupid stunt.
