Is this due to a falling out with Amazon or their current contract expiring? Or something else entirely?

The How and Why of Inbound Book Marketing | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it

Discoverability, SEO, keywords, rich metadata—get these things correct and success is yours, right?
Wrong, I’m sorry to say. Discoverability isn’t nearly enough. Discoverability relies on someone actively trying to discover something, which comes only at the end stage of the buying process. You need to catch people much earlier—long before they even know they want what you’re selling.

Review: Apple iPhoto Book-Making Tool | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it
It amuses me that although 90% of my reading is now in eBook, I seem to have more paper books than ever! That’s because I have been bitten by the craft bug this year. I don’t buy a lot of paper books, but I sure have been making them! Sketchbooks, journals, art workbooks and all manner of DIY kits have taken over my little bookcase, and my latest project has been a photo album.
