*** "Google Print" to Challenge Amazon ***

A promising announcement from the Internet's leading portal may
provide authors and publishers with a better option than Amazon:

Remember that Google's IPO in August has generated huge amounts
of cash to develop new services, in addition to its already superior
traffic and solid technical resources.


*** POD Controversy Continues ***

The October 1 issue of co-author Dan Poynter's e-zine covered
major changes in POD book distribution, picked up by Publishers
Weekly: Ingram, the largest POD book distributor, announced it
would stop keeping even one or two copies of most POD titles on
hand.  As a result, retailers would show slow delivery, and less
availability, going into the crucial holiday season just ahead.

Fortunately, Ingram's POD printer, LightningSource, has announced
that it will provide the minimum book or two needed to ease the
problem, during a transition period into early 2005:

In theory, the concept of printing books only after they are
ordered by consumers remains an exciting model for the future
of publishing.  Here at we have seen many real-
life demonstrations that LSI can dependably ship paperbacks to
retailers within a day or two of receiving orders.

The remaining challenge is for Ingram and LSI to convince
major retailers to report realistic delivery times to consumers,
without delays and surcharges that can cripple sales.

We will be watching the response of retailers closely during the
transition period, and will report developments in future issues
of this newsletter.
