I’m sad to report that I’ve had to close my Fantasy and Faith bookstore, which was an extension of my affiliate agreement with Amazon. The reason is that, due to a new law signed into effect by California Governor Jerry Brown, Amazon has terminated all agreements with its affiliates in California. According to the notice I received from Amazon:
The law “specifically imposes the collection of taxes from consumers on sales by online retailers…even if those retailers have no physical presence in the state.”
Just thought I’d let ya’ll know. For now, maybe a venti latte is what I need. If only I could get an affiliate agreement with Starbucks. Now that would be something!
