Matt Bell and I were discussing this recently:
Can small indie presses (smaller than Akashic, Coffee House, Dzanc) sustain the career of a single author? In other words, can a single author find a small press willing (and able) to stick with his or her work for the duration of a career? And is that best for the author? Or is it better to shift the work between two different presses, or spread them to a bunch of different presses, or what?
These are my questions.
