Smashwords Founder – Mark Coker | Upon the Gears of Big Publishing

Smashwords: Upon the Gears of Big Publishing

Smashwords founder Mark Coker shares some of his address and presentation at Berkeley University to the ASJA (American Association of Journalists and Authors). And spirited words they were…
“The Big Publisher gatekeeper-as-curator is being replaced by readers, as it should be.
My challenge to you, the author, is to throw yourself upon the gears of big publishing.
Take a stand and say no to others telling you no. If your book is finished, you have the freedom to get it out there now on your own terms as an ebook. Express yourself.”

The ‘Bodies Upon The Gears’ speech he cites in his presentation below:
