I thought it would be interesting to look back at the publishing scene a decade ago. In looking at these things, it sure doesn't seem like 10 years has passed, but so much is different in publishing. One thing is for sure, a lot has changed in favor of the author!
Eric and I want to say thank you to all of those people and businesses who helped us along the way; to the mentors in all aspects of publishing, marketing and running a business; to the authors who sought us out and asked us to be part of their publishing journey; and to our family for your patience, love and support.
