Michael, you picked that apart well. I learned a few things I was unaware of, especially the new self-publishing services being offered by Bookends, LLC. I wouldn't have known this if I hadn't read your comments simply because I have made no attempt to go after an agent. I've been self-publishing for years. Yet agents have to find a way to earn a living in this new self-publishing and ePublishing market. Good article. Thank you.
