E-publishing a book is easy to do - perhaps too easy. The E-Book market is flooded with thousands of authors, all trying to get a piece of the pie. There is nothing wrong with that, since there are countless books out there that have been rejected by the big-name agents and publishers. They are looking for million dollar sellers, which only leads to the dismissal of anything out-of-the-ordinary.
Personally, I like to write novels that I would want to read. These are adventure stories in the mold of the days of yore. I like strong characters who have to deal with their own weaknesses along with the evils of the world. Let's hear it for the diversity of the ideas. Let's hear it for the countless stories now available to everyone.
