Publishers were not happy with this situation, with many feeling that Amazon's approach meant the ballooning number of e-book consumers might get used to paying less for books than they were worth.
I wonder about the change in dynamic between author and editor when the author is the one paying for the editor. I mean, look at JK Rowling. Once she got big enough that should could pretty much tell her editors to sit and spin, her books started to get really sloppy in the pacing department.
It's actually really difficult to find people who are willing to give your writing a proper thrashing.
