The Millionaire Authors Who Went Against Amazon in Support of the Giant Publishers Are a 1% Elite Hurting the Little Guy– Me and Other Mid-List Authors

As anyone who has been reading my HuffPost blogs knows I'm "of the left." So I understand the impulse to regard corporations as bad and giant companies as downright evil. Enter the Amazon takeover of the world and destruction of all that is right and holy in publishing. Only there is another side to all this that I -- as a mid-level author of more than a dozen books and several best-sellers -- would like to offer. I love Amazon and here's why.Many years ago when Laura Bush read a paragraph … [Read more...]
