Submission + - Indie Bookstore Refuses Amazon Author's Signing (

jaskelling writes: What happens when an author wants to promote his book at the Seattle Mystery Bookstore? He gets shown the door and told "no way." Why? The author's books are published and promoted by Amazon. It seems that Amazon wants to use the independent booksellers advantage of having a physical location to do their own promotion & sales with an author, all while taking away the business of that very same store.

The owner/operator posts his email conversation with the author — and the viewpoints from both sides are insightful.
