#AceSalesReport – Feb.10: Publishers should pay authors as much as their other employees

There’s nothing to publish without writers, so why are they being pushed to extinction by their appalling pay?

Writers and publishers are in it together, I tend to feel. Not always in a cuddly way. Sometimes more in a screaming-down-the-mineshaft way. But in one critical respect the partnership feels increasingly strained.

Last month, the Society of Authors wrote an open letter to publishers calling for better, fairer contracts. To quote US media lawyer David Vandagriff, publishing contracts “stand apart from the general run of business agreements as conscience-shocking monstrosities”. Think supermarkets and small dairy farmers. Think, as Philip Pullman recently put it, steamrollers and ants.
