Is Amazon’s new policy meant to be a fake-out for buyers?

The Independent Book Publishers Association thinks it will hurt writers and publishers. And I think it will confuse buyers.

The Texas Association of Authors keeps us pretty well-informed in the professional world of writers and publishers. Thank the good Lord!

So for all my friends out there who aren’t in Texas, or aren’t members of the IBPA, I wanted to pass on the information. It appears that Amazon will be giving priority to third-party sellers! Yep, you heard that right.

Amazon “Buy Button” Policy Change.

How do you think this will change the face of self-publishing?

Do you think buyers will notice before or after they hit “buy?”

Talk to me – I love reading your comments.

  1. Not sure how this will affect independent publishing – especially those who do ebooks more than print, but I’m still woefully ignorant of much in the publishing world. How many third party sellers will get their hands on many of the indie books that are often print-on-demand through CreateSpace, etc.?
