Standing up to being bullied

So Amazon, a company I've done a lot of business with, is trying to bully/intimidate/threaten my publisher Hachette into doing what it wants. This is having a devastating impact on Hachette's authors, who have done nothing wrong. You can read more about the issue here.

I'll be putting up some alternate shopping sites asap. In the meantime, please consider placing your online book orders elsewhere, because Amazon isn't the only game in town and they shouldn't be allowed to get away with this crap. And I say that as a writer whose books they sell -- or used to -- and a reader who has really appreciated their services.
