Hachette claims that Amazon is deliberately delaying shipment of some titles up to a month in order to squeeze a better deal out of the publisher. Some authors expressed their frustration online today about this tactic they say Amazon has resorted to before. Amazon has declined to comment.

One author reported a unique form of protest against Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.

Another advised readers that they can bypass the Amazon delays by ordering from independent sellers.
