Selling books is nice. Double so for an author. But there are more important things in life. The thought that I’ll support the abuse of foreign workers at Amazon Germany if I sell my work through their platform doesn’t sit well with me.
OK, scrap that. Screw Amazon, screw this lot of knuckle-dragging neo-nazi wastes of oxygen they’ve hired as guards for their distribution centres, and screw myself for not reacting earlier.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s a good start to get information:
So: I’ll pull both “Lieutenant Samuel Blackwood (deceased)” and “The Radiant Boy” from Amazon. I guess this will take some time to go through, so I kindly ask all potential readers NOT to buy my books.
You can download them for free from my website, and if you want the print editions, you can buy them from me directly. But please don’t give Amazon your business anymore.
