Yes. It’s me. I am that pesky, no-named, unknown, little independent writer. I am that beligerant sonofabitch who believed myself too good for the system and got in bed with Amazon in order to sell my crappy books. Yes. It’s me. I am here to tell you that you are doing it wrong. Far be … Continue reading Hey, Publishers! You’re doing it wrong.
