Aaaaaaaand, here we go again……

message2amazonI wish I could say I’m surprised… But I’m not.

Once again, casual browsers to my humble little corner of the web will no longer be able to click on any “Amazon” links here and find my books available for purchase. Just a little while ago, I received this email from my publisher:

Dear Author:

Once again, Amazon is playing “Block The Publisher Without Just Cause,” and has cancelled our publishing account without valid reason or any forewarning. Their CLAIM is that we have multiple accounts with them. This is a flat-out lie, and can easily be proven…assuming it’s possible to reach a real person who is willing to examine the facts.

We publish on behalf of many different authors. One of those authors has an Amazon account of his own. We posted a few of his books under our account at his specific request. There were no double-postings; the books we published on his behalf were not already listed. However, we believe that since he has his own separate account, Amazon decided we were guilty of double-jeopardy.

It speaks volumes for Amazon’s dishonest practices that they did not contact us first for clarification; they simply made an arbitrary decision which affects several dozen authors. It speaks even more that they are refusing to pay us for all royalties accrued during the last two months because of their clear and obvious mistake.

WE WILL FIGHT THIS, and Boruma Publishing WILL make good on all royalties due, despite their blatant thievery; royalty payments will be paid next month as scheduled. We stand by our authors, period.

If you have any questions, please contact us.  In the meantime, we will notify you of any updates if/when they become available.

Soooo, just as they did earlier this year with Draft2Digital, Amazon completely fucked over me, my publisher, and the numerous authors that they represent.

With the Draft2Digital fiasco, the impact this had on me only amounted to like 4 or 5 sales, at the most. This time around, at last count, this affects the sales of somewhere around 25-30 books within the last couple of months. Royalties that Amazon just fucked me out of. Boruma says they will make good on them, in spite of Amazon’s actions, but even so,  how will that account for any possible future sales these books might have brought in?

As I mentioned in my post concerning Amazon’s corrupt treatment of D2D, had Amazon removed my books due to content, I would have simply used that as a major selling point, as I have on the one book they DID reject for content, Confessions Of My Nephew. But they didn’t. They removed them due to false accusations and arbitrary decisions over something that totally wasn’t my fault, and which I had no control over.

How the fuck am I supposed to use THAT????
