Rocking the Boat

Sometimes we as writers are afraid to speak out against bad people when those people are publishers. We're afraid to alienate a market we might one day sell something to. It's bullshit, of course. What we're really afraid of is rocking the boat and knowing no one will have our backs because they're all too scared or worried or too desperate for scraps to take a stand with you.

But sometimes you have to speak out. Sometimes you have to rock the boat.

Sometimes you have to take a stand.

And when you do, guess what you'll find? We have your back after all.
