Independent Publishers Group books returning to the Kindle store

Independent Publishers Group books returning to the Kindle store

Back in February, I reported about thousands of e-books distributed by IPG (Independent Publishers Group) being pulled from the Kindle store in a dispute over terms.

Now, it’s being reported that those books are coming back.

It’s a very interesting development.

My guess here is that Amazon wanted to change the terms, IPG didn’t agree, and Amazon said, “Bye bye”.

Again, still guessing, they argued it about it for months…with IPG finally agreeing. I don’t know that’s how it happened…it’s possible Amazon compromised, of course.

Still, the fact that the books could go away and then return is reassuring to me…it doesn’t meant that gone is gone forever.

IPG is reportedly going to give more money to the publishers from June 1st through August 31st to help make up for the loss income during the dispute.
