Ditch the Publisher free eBook

Firstly, apologies to any publishers reading this (I know some do visit my blog, and appear on it!), the title wasn’t my mine but I do think the eBook is great, but then I could be biased… I’m one of the 40 contributing authors (I’m no.7) – see the list below.

    Dear Morgen:
    Thank you for the opportunity for the download of the Ditch The Publisher book. I started reading it as it printed and it appears that these people have experienced the same dead pan efforts from the publishers as I have. I am sporting 386 rejections as of yet, with no end in sight of publishing. If I hadn’t taken the proverbial bull by the horns and published on my own I would still be waiting for approval.
    Best regards,
    James M. Copeland
