Follansbee Biography I've loved science fiction ever since I wrote my first Star Trek fanfic story at age Now, I'm pursuing my dream of writing science fiction novels, but with a modern emphasis on our planet's changing climate.

Most editors have tried to help me make my work better, which helps both of us in the long run. What have you learned from each of these experiences? The expanding world of print-on-demand and author services teaches one lesson: The old world of centralized control of the printed word is gone forever. In the bad old days, because of the costs associated with producing and distributing books, traditional publishers were the only organizations with the capital to make books. For the most part, authors were dependent on publishers to reach an audience with their ideas.
Sci-Fi / Adventure / Thrillers
We are now in a transition period in which the center of power is shifting toward the author. If the author focuses on an ebook, the costs are even lower. While traditional publishers still have considerable power in the marketplace, and authors are still wise to submit work to the Big Six and their smaller cousins, unsold manuscripts no longer have to sit on a shelf with no future.
One consequence of this change is the greater responsibility that rests on the independent author. The most common complaint I see of independently published work is the apparent lack of proofing.

For example, I sought out an editor to review my manuscript for Bet: Stowaway Daughter , and she made several important suggestions on a range of issues. In the traditional model, the author may have simply submitted an accepted manuscript and waited. An independent author needs to be more assertive about quality control. Independent authors like myself have another new responsibility: marketing.
