Over my career, I’ve written for small publishers and large. There are pluses and minuses to each. It’s the same way with self-publishing, but one of the things I like most is having control over my stories. I listen to advice, but I get to make the final call. In the case of Ghost Flute, for example, there was originally an epilogue that ended the story. However, the publisher I was working with decided they liked how the story ended without it. I removed my ending, but that was something that always bugged me about the story. I felt that without the epilogue, a thread was left hanging. Once I retained the rights to the story and decided to re-issue it, I went back and read the story with fresh eyes. Guess what? I still loved the epilogue and thought it was needed. So I put it back! Ahhh, feels so good.
