A
ltro giro... altro regalo!
Ecco la mail che ho trovato oggi (di ritorno dall'Olanda) nella mia casellina postale...

Dear Lulu Author,
Your publication, Midda's Chronicles - Il tempio nella palude (e altre storie), was listed on Amazon as part of Lulu's Amazon marketplace pilot. We've been reading the forum posts and emails and have learned a great deal since we launched the pilot. The majority of our authors have responded positively and many are already seeing an increase in their book sales.
Based on your feedback and after reading the policies of several marketplaces, we've decided to match your titles listing price on Lulu with the listing price on Amazon by removing the 30% markup.
We want to stress that this is a pilot - moving forward, we will work closely with Amazon and other marketplaces, as well as solicit your advice to decide on the most effective manner of offering this service to you. We are evaluating many options, including how to best allow our authors to opt in and how to include a mark-up to cover the retail fee. Once we have the service fully defined, we will choose an end date for the pilot and communicate in advance how you can decide whether to continue to list your title on Amazon or not.
Our long term goal is to help our authors succeed, which in this case means giving you the option to seamlessly distribute your books to as many marketplaces as possible. We may not always get it right the first time, but we are committed to providing you with the tools you need to generate more sales for your titles.
Thank you for participating in this pilot program.
Kind regards,
Lulu

Tutta questo quale scopo?
Semplicemente per sottolineare come ora, su Amazon.com, il primo volume di Midda's Chronicles è in vendita addirittura a 18 euro!!!
Ebbene sì... se andate a gettare un occhio nella pagina di Amazon.com dedicata al mio libricino, potrete trovare come sia indicato a 25,16 dollari statunitensi, che al cambio attuale mi risulta corrispondere a 18 euro!
E, se tutto va bene, nelle prossime settimane il libro dovrebbe comparire indicizzato anche in altri Amazon europei, fra cui quello francese, quello britannico e quello tedesco... mica male, no?

Grazie a tutti!
