Small publisher defends

29 May, 2014

Independent book publisher Mark Shepard defends Amazon in its dispute with French publisher Hachette. Many have criticized Amazon for raising prices on Hachette books or making them unavailable during discussions over Amazon’s share of sales. Shepard publishes a post on his blog in defense of Amazon:
