I would like to thank SPAN for its support of the Booklocker which just happens to be my publisher. A truly honorable and support team deserves national backing.

Thank you, again, for your campaign against those misguided souls who decided to act like too many newspaper and magazine publishers, and let greed and power-lust drive their approach to authors.
I have just asked my friends and loved ones to stop sending us gifts from Amazon–something some of them do with remarkable frequency. My wife and I have stopped buying ANYTHING from Amazon–or known affiliates, for that matter. WE now ask those who love us to do the same, at least when it comes to sending things to us.
I have signed the petition, and now that I have Mr. Bezos’s e-mail address, will attempt to explain to him why we no longer purchase from Amazon–something that we did a lot of over the years. Granted, our one small account (perhaps a couple hundred $ per year) won’t even get their attention, but if we can influence enough people to follow suit–can you say Osborne computer????
The more the merrier don’t you think?
