Frank Schaeffer, “The publishers, not Amazon, keep authors down”
WOAH, HOLD THE PHONE. I had never even considered this before and it’s an amazing point. Amazon has been made out to be this big evil entity, but we should all remember that it’s Amazon vs. publishers, not Amazon vs. writers!
Wow, I just love reading perspectives like this that totally change my own.
How about no. Amazon is not some awesome breath of fresh air. They’re as much of a gatekeeper as any publishing company and to say otherwise is highly disingenuous.
