I have been accused of having animosity towards Publishers and Editors. True sort of.
I have spent several years talking to writers, learning the business side of it and I have heard a lot of horror stories about Publishers and Editors. Now to be fair I do not know if that is 99% of the time or 1%, but I dislike having anyone who can veto me being able to eat and live indoors.
This is not animosity just a statement of fact. These people are headed to the trash heap of history, and I say good riddance to bad rubbish! Whatever the future holds for writers Corporate Publishers and Editors will not be there. Just as newspapers are a very fast declining industry so are printed books. Thanks to the magic of print on demand, books will be around for some time yet but the publishing of books will not.
If there is anything useful that Corporate Publishers and Editors do I am sure either the writers themselves or some other person will step up to the plate and do it. I had to do my own cover art, the horror, the horror!
Reality is changing the world of writing, correction technology is changing writing.
Do I have animosity towards Publishers and Editors? I would if I thought of them at all. I don't spend much time thinking of buggy whip makers or do-do birds either.
