Print Publishing: You’re NOT OPEC!

E-books and the Agency Argument

A statement from Amazon UK discussing its US experience says “when prices went up on agency-priced books, sales immediately shifted away from agency publishers and towards the rest of our store”. If there’s any truth in this it can’t be good for publishing.

As a writer, I should love it. I should wish it eternal life.

Because the price-gouging they’re engaging in makes people try new writers who price cheaper.
