Another problem with "big" publishing...

My fourth novel, The Collectors, came out last week from Forker Media. FM is my third publisher out of four novels. My others, Homecoming, The Trilon (Pandora Publishing Project) and Division Six (Fringe Majority) are all with small publishers.  I have a fifth novel, and shopped that around. As I did, I learned the nuances of publishing.  I kept digging after rejections piled up.  You can blame my attitude adjustment to Big Publishing through rejections but so many of the returns were "not what we are looking for". I get it. I'm not a simpleton or child. Then I started reading horror stories and watched "successful" authors release book after book with the same tired old plots. So I looked for someone hungry, someone who wants to take a chance on what I write and possibly enjoys it.
     Anyway, enough rambling. Check out this link to IndieReader and see what I am talking about.


  1. It's so frustrating when something new and interesting is rejected in favour of a tired olf plot line!

  2. Exactly. No one owns thought. Who are they to decide?
