Today’s post can be found at http://magicalwords.net, the group blog on the business and craft of writing fantasy that I maintain with fellow authors Faith Hunter and Misty Massey, among others. The post is called “Promotion Time and Publishing Wars” and it’s about promotion I’m doing for my upcoming releases and the impact the Amazon v. MacMillan war might have on my sales. I hope you enjoy it. Oh, and by the way, there’s a new contest up on my website: http://www.DavidBCoe.com. Visit the site and maybe you’ll win a signed copy of my upcoming release, The Dark-Eyes’ War!

"...but who don’t wait on pins and needles for every David B. Coe release."

Who are these cretins? I want names! Why I'll hunt 'em down and show 'em what's what!!!

So, I emailed Amazon and they replied back saying they need an order number. So, I emailed the folks and am getting that. Won't do anything more than nip at Amazon but that is annoying.

Good luck with the releases, David.

Yes, I share your amazement at their very existence (these people who aren't waiting for my releases). But really, they don't know any better. It's not really their fault....

Thanks for keeping after Amazon. I appreciate it. Thanks as well for the good wishes.

This correct?

"On Sunday, Amazon alerted customers that it had bowed to pressure from publisher Macmillan, which insisted on charging $12.99 to $14.99 for its books sold at the Kindle e-reader bookstore rather than Amazon's standard $9.99."

Your book is still not available on the Amazon web site but that may take them a few days to change everything back....

It does seem that Amazon has capitulated, but they have yet to put back those pesky "buy" buttons.
