Am now just a little bit wound up by the bullshit being posted there about e-books. There are reasonable complaints to be made about the agency model, but you can’t tell from most posts whether they’re written be morons who think they’re being stolen from if books aren’t on sale at a price so low only a handful of writers will ever earn a half-decent wage, or by the Amazon marketing department intentionally posting outright lies.
It’s astonishing to note that some of them have decided publishers are like bankers and squeezing huge profits out the innocent poor. This is the same industry where, when you get business consultants to come in and look at the figures, they end up astonished that anyone would choose to work in an industry where there’s so little money to be made.
Right, more coffee, then back to writing. No good will come from joining in a debate with the ignorant… and you can’t kill them all, it would take too long.
