Authors! To the barricades! Surely, together, we can come up with a form of Union to represent us and our interests? On our own, we have no voice, but as a group just think of the strength and confidence it would give us all.
If you’re tired of getting screwed, tired of desperately unfair contracts all in the publishers’ favour, maybe now is the time to do something about it.
With all the Hachette/Amazon hullabaloo, and all the astonishing changes in the way you can publish a book, it sounds the ideal time to organise an Authors’ Union and slip it under the wire as the official authorial voice before the publishing world realises it exists.
What do you think?
