James Finn, despite Mitch Albom taking a page from a lot of publications’ playbook issuing a call for submissions (see this week’s Medium newsletter), I too think they’re doing some back end tweaking. Someone’s been in touch with me as well.
That’s why my tone wasn’t accusatory or confrontational. I wanted them to know I was only giving a heads-up.
We’ll see what happens, but I think they know that if individual editors can set-up pubs and gain followings, why not traditionally published authors who already have massive followings.
Game, set, match — capitalism.
