I read this article, and, well the author has some good points. I still think there’s a place in this world for publishers, but if everything this guy says is true, then they’ll have to change their game.
Big business is always focusing on ever-growing profits, there is apparently no such thing as ‘enough’ profit for a given time frame. If so, the big publishers may not want to change their terms. But I have hope that the self-publishing industry will continue to grow every year. If it does, the big publishers will be forced to change their terms to something more favorable to authors.
