The Authors Guild Adds Regional Chapters and Opens Dialogue With Amazon

According to Publishing Perspectives’ editor-in-chief, Porter Anderson, the Authors Guild “announced its creation of 14 newly devised regional chapters, 13 of them outside the New York area, with more to be added within a year’s time” as part of a new outreach effort. Two members of the guild lead each chapter. They will help develop events and programs that cater to local needs.

Additionally, the guild “has announced that it ‘has arranged a procedure with Amazon for resolving authors’ complaints with their Amazon book listings.’ … The effort is in response to what the guild reports are members raising ‘a variety of concerns about their Amazon listings,’” including Buy boxes that point to incorrect listings and customer reviews that violate Amazon’s guidelines.
