To Amazon boycotters

14 April 2009

For those boycotting Amazon.com either because of perceived censorship (and cover-up) or because they think Kindle prices are too high:

Gods, Gachupines and Gringos is available (as are Editorial Mazatlan’s other books)  in the United States and Mexico direct from the publisher. (e-mail: publisher@editorialmazatlan.com) and in Mexico at:

MEXICO, D.F. Global Books

Cd. OBREGON, SON. Libros y Mas

GUADALAJARA, JAL. Sandys’ Books

GUADALAJARA, JAL.Global Books

GUANAJUANTO, GTO. Donkey Jote

MAZATLAN, SIN. Mazatlan Book and Coffee

MERIDA, YUC. Amate Books

OAXACA, OAX. Amate Books

PUEBLA, PUE. Global Books

PTO MORELOS, Q.R. Alma Libre Books

PTO VALLARTA, JAL. The Book Store

SAN CRISTOBAL, CHIS. La Pared

SAN MIGUEL, GTO. Zocalo Folk Art

SAN MIGUEL, GTO El Tecolote

Please remember you’re talking about a very tiny publisher (two editorial employees in Mexico and a part-time warehousing person in the United States):  Amazon.com is for now Editorial Mazatlan’s only international distributor.  Canadian orders require the warehouser to fill out a separate GST tax form for each order (and include it in the price).  Outside the three NAFTA countries, Editorial Mazatlan ships from the United States and has to include the shipping costs on top of the normal price.

As to Kindle prices, the list price is what was fair for a limited market, high production cost book.  However, Amazon is keeping the price at 9.99 USD for now.  Other e-book formats and other distributors (Powells, Barnes and Noble) are being explored, but there is only so much a very tiny staff can do at any time.  Setting up accounts and getting them stock takes time and money that’s always in short supply.

    Well, now I know why Amazon.ca doesn’t carry it.

    Wasn’t NAFTA supposed to make all this ridiculous red tape history? I was told it would.
