New Pricing Deal With Two Publishers

Don't know if this was posted elsewhere but two more publishers have convinced Amazon to go the Apple way and let publishers set pricing.

Amazon Caves Again

As far as I am concerned, just one more reason to buy more e-books from BAEN!

Well, it is either cave or not have the books...

What is going to happen (with me anyhow) is that I will wait for the book to drop in price before buying it... but there will be a book that will catch my attention by that time and I will forget all about that book... they will just loose a sale

Yes, I love Baen's books! Just bought their March webscriptions bundle!

I don't see how the publisher's can set ebook prices almost the same price as a regular book. Doesn't seem fair to me.

I wrote about this on my blog awhile back. I still think this is going to blow up in the publishes face.
