Amazon yanked all print-on-demand publishing

Write to Self Publishing

I’ve been in publishing only a short while, but I’ve been around it enough to have seen some of the big brew-ha-has involving Amazon. The first was when Amazon yanked all print-on-demand titles not produced through their print-on-demand arm. The second was when all MacMillan ebook titles were pulled during the great agency debate. Well it’s happening again.

Independent Publishers Group, a large distributor for independent presses and authors has had all 5,000 of their ebooks pulled from the Amazon kindle. The print versions of their books are still for sale.

The reason, is that their ebook contract was up for renewal and IPG wanted the same terms, and Amazon wanted a deeper discount. When they couldn’t agree, Amazon pulled the titles.

What does this mean to me
For most authors to this board, not a whole lot…except to point out that you should put some things in place.
