The Giant that is Amazon

I have just been refused by an independent bookshop as they, and I quote, “can’t have any supplier relationship with Amazon or its subsidiaries”. Surely this is just cutting off their noses to spite their faces? Yes, given, the massive machine that is Amazon is responsible, in one way, for small bookshops closing, but has recently introduced a POD demand service (Createspace) where indie Authors can publish their books and which could be used by the smaller bookshops to their advantage. The smaller shops don’t need to stock enormous orders- they just order on demand barr the first couple of copies?- and they could help the indie-author by promoting their books for them, in return, the indie-Author can spread the word in the local community and everyone wins
