So you're just making shit up?
Uh, no. You're the one who made the assertion, so the burden of proof is on you.
So, you don't have a publisher in the traditional form. Just self published. How's that workin' out for ya?
Pretty well, thanks. This is a great time for independent creators and always getting better (just ask Chris Mihm
). The problem is advertising, of course, but I've sold a decent number of copies in at least six or seven countries and gotten great feedback from my readers. Also, being an independent creator has put me in touch with other independent creators, from writers to artists to filmmakers to rock'n'roll musicians, so I'm experiencing a lot of great stuff that's bypassed the suit-and-tie filter.
