I got the rights to one of my books back from a publisher today (official letter and everything), and I am as excited by this as I was when they bought the rights back in 2004, and I am in fact more excited than I would be if another publisher appeared out of the blue and offered to buy the rights.
This isn’t to knock small publishing or traditional publishing or whatever. I am just marveling at how different my own thinking is – I spent a lot of 2000 to 2011 trying to find publishers, and now I am delighted to have gotten my book rights away from one.
Truly, things have changed.
I’ll talk a bit more about this in a few weeks.
