I love Amazon. They transformed publishing so that self-published authors and independent publishers like me could compete with the big five New York publishers. Amazon didn’t stigmatize or separate people who self-published, like I did with my first novel, Chasing the 400. Amazon made it possible for me to even think about then becoming an independent publisher with a means to get my books to the masses through their website. And, Amazon has given authors and publishers like me great platforms to reach our audiences, like the Author Page.
When Amazon stock went on sale, I bought some as a way to support the company that supported me. I still own Amazon stock, and I always will, no matter what its ups and downs. I support my friends, and that’s what I consider Amazon to be.

So, if you’re so inclined–support Amazon. They’ve changed retailing and, as an author and publisher, they changed my life.
Peace and happy shopping–Sheilah.
