Writing Quote Of The Year: Paul Witcover

e-books and backlists — the past and future collide

Writers, remember: the publisher is not your friend. The publisher is your enemy. You may make a truce, enter into detente, even temporary alliance — but do not forget that they view their interests as distinct from yours, and they will fuck you over when it suits them to do so.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.
