Discussion in 'Electronic Publishing' started by Steerpike, Aug 3, 2016.
I think it is inevitable that big publishers will move more in this direction. Good thing or bad?
Amazon already collects much of the mentioned data with its Kindle books, and has been doing it for years. I thought it was information that Amazon might 'sell' to publishers but, with an often adversarial relationships with publishers, and having their own lines of published books, maybe not so much.
I think that data will be used by big publishers because with the increased competition created through smaller publishers and self-publishing authors, the large houses have to have a greater percentage of hits as compared to misses, to survive in the long run.
