We Don't Want You To Get Robbed, So We'll Just Take Your Wallet Now
Traveling to the Bainbridge Writer's Conference near Seattle this weekend to give the keynote. I'll be talking about some of the issues I discuss in this Guardian piece on the battle between Amazon and legacy publishers. The battle fascinates me not just because I write books for a living, but also because it involves some of the topics I find most engaging: political use of language; the establishment mentality and mindset; the struggle between the forces of control and the forces of democratization. Enjoy.
