I sometimes get told that someone has ordered my book from Amazon. Which is fine, if you want to support Amazon. The poet will get nothing from the sale, and the publisher a little. It may not be common knowledge that most poets, myself included, get no royalties. Most small publishers give the poet some books, and sell them more at discounted price. We have to personally sell the books to even get back our outlay. So please support the poets whose work you love by buying from them directly. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org - I'll send them by return and post free!
