A Must Read for Writers and artists of all kinds


Another great post from Kristen Lamb:

 http://warriorwriters.wordpress.com/2012/02/22/amazon-beware-of-greeks-bearing-gifts/#comment-23492 

She makes the case that all artists need to prepare for the future of marketing our products through whatever conduit is available. Amazon seems to have it all right now, but their danger as well as ours, is that they become a monopoly and self-destruct, which does neither them nor us any favors. Worse, they may turn out to be more anti-artist than Big Six publishers are to writers currently, because they only care about selling books, not promoting great writing.

What do you think? Will Amazon ultimately harm or benefit writers (and other artists) ?
