Amazon.com has just very quietly launched a new section on its US site. Thanks to 40k Books for the Tweet pointing to Brendan Gannon’s blog post making a louder announcement than Jeff Bezos seems to have done.

Can it be that the fabulous level playing field been tipped up at one end, sending all the poor wee self-published authors into a boggy pit known as “Kindle Indie Books”?

It hasn’t happened on the UK site yet, but we are notoriously slow on the uptake, Kindle-wise, on this side of the Atlantic. I dare say it’ll come to these shores soon.

Bugger.

Just when I was thinking the revolution was truly taking hold, Amazon throws its weight around. I’m not sure what this will mean longer term – at the moment indie authors are still appearing in the main Kindle Books listings (Rick Murcer is No 1 at the time of writing with Caribbean Moon).

Fingers crossed they won’t carry out some sort of unpleasant cleansing exercise and consign indies to their own enclosure.

Watch that space.
