Changes to my book listings on Amazon

January 4, 2012 at 1:03 pm 1 comment

Hello, all,

Because of a change in Amazon’s policies, I am in the process of re-publishing both of my books — Formatting Legal Documents With Microsoft Word 2010 and Formatting Legal Documents With Microsoft Office Word 2007 — via Amazon’s print-on-demand (POD) unit, CreateSpace.  The current listings on Amazon will be removed for a short period, starting on January 10.

When the books are re-listed on Amazon (probably within a few days), almost everything will be the same:  the titles, the prices, the book descriptions, etcetera.  The only noteworthy differences are that I have jazzed up the covers somewhat, and I have made a few minor revisions to the content.  (The changes in the books’ appearance will be much more obvious than the substantive edits.)

Note that the current editions of both books will remain available on Lulu.com. Buying directly from Lulu is still a good option, especially when you use a discount coupon to offset the shipping charges.  Lulu offers such coupons frequently, often for 20% to 35% off the cost of one or more books.  Regular readers of this blog know that I post notices about Lulu’s discount coupons as they become available (when I learn about them).

Note, too, that if you are interested in buying multiple copies of one of my books, I can give you direct access to a page on Lulu where I can set a volume discount.  I’m not sure if I will be able to do that on Amazon; I’ll find out soon.

In the meantime, you might have noticed some oddities in the appearance of my books’ pages on Amazon.  The descriptions of the contents have vanished and have been replaced with some gobbledygook related to used copies that a third party — unrelated to and, for that matter, completely unknown to me — had been selling on Amazon (for a mere $499!!!).   Unfortunately, there appears to be no way for me to change the descriptions.

Since the listings will be removed early next week anyway, I might not even bother to ask Amazon to restore the descriptions.  You can read the descriptions on the books’ Lulu pages.  They are available as follows:

Formatting Legal Documents With Microsoft Word 2010

Formatting Legal Documents With Microsoft Office Word 2007

In any case, don’t be startled if you can’t find the books on Amazon for a few days. I’ll post back as soon as they are re-listed.
