RosettaBooks CEO: Authors Should Look For Publishers Who Play Ball With Amazon

16 November 2012

From Digital Book World:

Authors should be more eager to do business with publishers who are friendly with Amazon, according to the CEO of RosettaBooks, an independent ebook publisher.

“If you’re an author looking to make money, you should find a publisher who is playing ball,” said Arthur Klebanoff, founder and CEO of RosettaBooks, an ebook publisher founded with 100 back-list titles in 2001.

. . . .

His comments were in reference to pricing promotions that Amazon and other ebook retailers run. He displayed a slide which depicted a great lift in ebook sales and overall revenue during and after pricing promotions.

. . . .

“The purpose of litigation in this arena is intimidation,” he said. “That’s why Random House sued Rosetta and that’s why HarperCollins is suing Open Road Media.”
