To Err is Amazon

My online buddy Will Entrekin, fellow poet and writer, raises some interesting points in his recent post On Selling Through Amazon (or not).

Will has had much success with his own POD book which doesn’t even have an ISBN. What does that mean? Quite simply, it means his book is not available in bookstores or on any other website except where it was published.  Through book reviews, word-of-mouth, and lots of hard word at self promoting, Will has managed to sell over 100 copies.  The profit may not be enough to make a living, but the pride alone of having someone read your work has to be phenomenal.

As the great debate of Amazon monopolizing the POD world continues, it’s nice to hear success stories like Will’s that got there without Amazon at all!
