Authors United

Well, published authors anyway. The group of authors who recently signed a letter written by Douglas Preston of the Authors Guild have now formed a group called Authors United to put a long-term strategy in place to help ‘deal’ with Amazon.

Here’s a link to The Bookseller’s article.

Then there’s the petition posted on Change.org that comes in on Amazon’s side. It’s got over seven thousand signatures so far; Amazon does have its defenders. Many of whom are independent authors whose work might never have seen the light of day without Amazon’s self-publishing platform.

I don’t want to get into the whole publisher/indie argument here. As I’ve said before, I believe there’s room in this big ol’ world for all of us. Both sides ought to make some concessions and end this whole thing, and get the news back to where it belongs; about the books these companies are publishing, not the companies themselves.
