Lost Book Sales: Every day an author and a publisher lose a sale. These are the stories why.
I mentioned this site before. Things have since changed for the worse for readers. Random House has adopted the price-fixing anti-competitive Agency Model.
For example, overnight The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo went from about US$5.00 to US$7!
For no damn good reason.
It could have been Agency Priced at what it was. But no. Random House wants to squeeze some more money out of people.
That’s a lost sale to me.
I can wait until the price drops. Maybe that will happen when Random House declares bankruptcy from other such lost sales.
