Personally, I'm at the point where change is good. It can't be any worse for writers than it is now. Another major publisher could really shake things up. It worries me, however, that Amazon is revealing nothing about how they will work with writers. Why not? Are they afraid of letting the competition know or letting writers know. If they are truly dedicated to high quality writers, this could be great for authors like Suzanne Strempek Shea, Roland Merullo, Michael White and others whose skills might receive the full recognition deserved. If, on the other hand, Amazon's criteria for publication are things like whether or not you're a high profile politician or cable talk show host, then not much will change.
What do you think?
