Literary Lions Protest Amazon’s E-Book Tactics

“Last spring, when Amazon began discouraging customers from buying books published by Hachette, the writers grumbled that they were pawns in the retailer’s contract negotiations over e-book prices. During the summer, they banded together and publicly protested Amazon’s actions.”

As an author, I’m not happy with the cheap and free book pricing model for so many e-books because it treats the books as mere files rather than focusing on the content in those files or on the authors’ time and skills in creating memorable stories.
