It's a long discussion, but I found it very interesting. One point in particular caught my eye: at one point this author had her book being considered by THREE publishers simultaneously, then after months of flirtation, they all abandoned the idea! Ouch! That's worse than the dating scene. (Happy ending: she self published and made good money and now thinks it's more than she'd have made had she gone the traditional route.)

That said, I don't know this author or her books, and it's likely to stay that way. But if she and her readers are happy...
