Daniel and I have an engaging discussion about the interplay between publishers, authors, and readers. We talk about independent bookstores and the impact of Amazon on the entire industry. I learned so much in this conversation about the independent publishing and book businesses. If you’re at all interested in books, writers, publishers, or even the evolving nature of retailing in the era of Amazon, I think you’ll get a lot from this episode.
As always, thanks for listening and for reading.
