Amazon's "New Deal"

You've probably heard that Amazon.com is now jumping into the Print On Demand world with all four feet! As a result, the news and rumors are flying from one end of the publishing world to the other. And that includes traditional publishing, do-it-yourself publishing, vanity publishing, POD publishing, cooperative publishing, and just about every other kind of publishing. It could have an effect on anyone who now has a book listed for sale on Amazon.

One of the most comprehensive collections of explanations about this new development can be found at http://www.writersweekly.com/amazon.php/. Check it out. And if you have any questions about how your OWN Amazon-listed book will be affected, check with your own publisher.
