Konrath on Traditional Publishers

Fun post by JA Konrath on how the relationship between writers and big house traditional publishers has changed. Writers got the short end of everything for so long, and now are in the driver's seat-- and publishers are yelling about how terrible it is. Because it's harder for them to make money. Oh boo-hoo. Tough luck fellas--but it's your own fault that you haven't been able to adapt to the new world.

In the new model, the writer controls their career. And it's heady stuff, believe me. A lot of work, sure, but for those willing to do it, a brave new world. Wow- imagine-- the ones who produce the content get the benefit, instead of it going to monopolizing middlemen. Crazy stuff, huh?
