The publishing community is in a virtual tizzy over Amazon’s recent announcement that they will require all POD (print on demand) books to be published by Amazon’s subsidiary POD company BookSurge.
Publishers Weekly has been keeping up with the story. Here’s the first of a series of articles: Amazon to Force POD Publishers to use BookSurge.
I have no doubt that many of our readers will be affected by this new situation. And because many POD companies, including BookSurge, are among our advertisers, I’m withholding my own opinion on this issue.
But I’m curious to know what you think. Will you be affected by Amazon’s recent move? What do you think about this latest publishing controversy?
