I just looked at this guys sales numbers through today........This guy has only sold 13 books the ENTIRE year......THIS IS A SCAM!! SHAME on him for dissing Amazon for publicity!
Even if it weren't a scam....AS IF he would have SOLD 6,111 copies of his book? GET REAL!! Amazon wouldn't owe this idiot a penny!! His book IS out there for free with the discounters. Price matching is clearly covered by Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. The author caused this with so many 'copies' of his book! Not Amazon!
If you are going to self publish, read the rules! Not to mention, His royalty on each book is NOT close to $5.99! Depending on what country the purchase was made from, his royalty would be a FRACTION of $5.99.
PS......stay away from the discounters! Go with a publisher or accept the pitfalls of being a self-pubber! and I am NOT employed by Amazon or related to anyone employed there.
