The distinguished publisher Jonathan Galassi contributed an Op-Ed Contribution in The New York Times where his main argument is,”A publisher selects, nurtures, positions and promotes a writer’s work, while an e-book distributor is a purveyor of work that has already been created.” [ There’s More to Publishing Than Meets the Screen ].
When Jonathan Galassi speaks everybody listens. There was a wave of reactions and tweets and retweets by a lot of people ranging from the newbie Twitterer through to the highly influential.
