Think you’re safe from the Amazon/BookSurge ultimatum because you’re in the United Kingdom? Think again. You might be next!

Amazon has lauched a POD service in the U.K. While they say “We are offering titles that are being produced by other print on demand providers”…they don’t say they’ll continue to do so.

The article also states: “It is unclear whether this move will affect terms negotiations with publishers. North refused to comment adding ‘we are launching something brand new and we hope it will create savings that will benefit everybody’.”

    I’m late to the game but I’m also boycotting Amazon. I’m actually upset that I just sent some stuff for Christmas. Doesn’t matter. It’s the last penny they see from me.

    Some people may not think this matters because the only people using POD technology are self published writers, however this could put small presses out of business.
