In an earlier post I wrote about self-publishing (click here to read it), I proposed the possibility that the agents will be the losers in the self-publishing revolution.
I reblogged this interesting post by David Gaughran: Lazy Literary Agents In Self-Publishing Money Grab via Argo Navis as it suggests some agents have found a way around this issue. However, it is not an honourable way.
It’s one thing to have an agent offer a publishing service if they do it well, but it’s wrong if they do it the Argo Navis way. An author can spend years writing and fine-tuning a story and subsequently, I believe they deserve the bulk of the royalties.
Writers, read and be warned.
