Copia Runs Sale On eBooks Dropped From Amazon

eBook social networking site Copia is responding to Amazon removing almost 5,000 eBooks represented by the Independent Publisher’s Group from its store, by running a sale on some of those eBooks.

The Copia newsletter explains: “Recently, a very big bookseller has stopped selling eBooks from the Independent Publishers Group. Why? Allegedly because the scrappy, innovative IPG refused the bookseller’s ‘laws of the jungle’ pricing demands. Copia salutes IPG for protecting their authors. Check out our sale of IPG classics and bestsellers.”

As part of the sale, Pamela Des Barre‘s I’m With the Band is $8.78, John Austin‘s So Now You’re a Zombie: A Handbook for the Newly Undead is now $6.99 and Ann Fairbairn‘s Five Smooth Stones is now $10.94.

Since last week, when IPG announced the news that Amazon did not renew its contract, the publishing industry has been responding. Author Jim Hanas, whose book was removed from the Kindle Store, responded by removing the Amazon buy button from the website for the book Why They Cried.
