Of Amazon, Ellora's Cave and Dear Author

I don't want to know about this.
Panzer was tootling around in the Catosphere and stumbled over an interesting post at publisher Melville House's site.

Melville editor Sal Robinson's post addresses the issues with erotica publisher Ellora's Cave.  Ellora's Cave brought a law suit against Dear Author blogger Jane Litte.  Ms. Litte wrote a post about Ellora's Cave's finances.

Now my big bad kitty boy knows nothing about erotica or Ellora's Cave or their finances. What drew him to the post was the title, Is Amazon responsible for the Ellora's Cave fiasco? Most of the post is about EC's finances. In addition, there are some interesting points included about Amazon's search algorithm and its possible impact on EC's sales. However, there are other points about why and how the search algorithm might not be picking up EC's books in the potential buyers' searches.

Panzer says, "Do you suppose Amazon is responsible for the extinction of the dinosaurs? They seem to be responsible for every other bad thing that's happened in the world."
