RWA has received questions from members who are concerned about Amazon's new "Buy Button" program.
In order for RWA to effectively advocate for authors, we need proof that resellers who win "Buy Button" placement are, indeed, selling books that do not meet Amazon's own standards for "new.” View the standards
Authors can help by taking the following steps:
- If your book is listed for sale with a Buy Button from a third-party seller, purchase your own book.
- Once the book arrives, examine it carefully for wear. Please review the standards shown in the above link and report books that do not meet Amazon's standards for "new."
- Notify RWA: If the book does not meet the standards for “new,” please send images of the book to Allison Kelley, RWA Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
