I think the people who complain that my books are mostly available on Amazon are the ones who are also adding onto the stress that I am just an impostor pretending to have books out.

These people are mostly white and mostly happily partaking in capitalist cultures where gosh, they can go to bookstores etc etc. They forget that publishing industry and its distribution is deeply flawed and small presses often lose out in the end. Do you know that bookstore chains will never accept print runs from Amazon/Createspace? Do you know that they are also strong-armed by bigger and more powerful publishers who flood the chains with their books?

So, have a heart, people.
