Speaking of Book Buyers...

Looks like Amazon, which has bought its own print-on-demand (POD) subsidiary, BookSurge, also has its own ideas about how to do business.  According to GalleyCat and Publisher's Weekly, Amazon is threatening to disable all the "buy buttons" for any titles-on-demand that aren't printed by BookSurge.  Some bloggers are crying "Monopoly!"  That's one word for it.

I guess SOMEONE'S got to figure out a way to make a PROFIT off of print on demand....goodness knows it can't be left ALL to the writer. That would create ANARCHY.
