Someone in Amazon must have left their abacus at home.
When we promoted on Amazon, we made sales. Amazon made sales. No promotion, no sales. Ergo, Amazon wasn't losing sales through promo threads. Just the opposite. But, Whingers United will lose it money. They won't suddenly start buying more to make up for the shortfall. And we, the authors, will simply sell more through other, non-Amazon, channels. People who have been seeking us out here go where we go, not the other way round.
An interesting situation, don't you think?
