A Horror Story: When Readers of a Self-Published Book are Offered Refunds (and Not By the Author Herself … But She’s Paying for Them)

For anyone who is self-publishing in the hopes of attracting a publisher, here’s a horror story for you:  If A Publisher Offers You a Contract for Your Self-Published Book, Will You Be Forced (By Amazon) To Refund Past Customers Who Bought It?.  You can also read the writer’s original post here: http://www.jamiemcguire.com/amazon-beautiful-disaster-emails/.  What is happening to this author doesn’t make any sense at all.  The original book isn’t “defective” like a short wire in a waffle iron (and then those companies rarely inform their customers of the defect and offer a refund).  Is (part of) the lesson that one avoid doing business with Amazon?
