As a disclaimer I have never received a rejection slip because I have never used traditional publishers. As an Indie publisher I have the ultimate power or authority and I can exercise that authority over when my book is published. I may change my mind, but if I want it published it gets published.
These days the author has more responsibility than ever before – and more opportunities!
Why is it a Big Deal?
Because now authors have the CreateSpace they love and the Kindle they love under one roof.
