[Path to Publication] Is the Loss of Control Worth It when You Publish with a Big Five?

As a new writer who lucked out with a deal from a so-called Big Five publishing house, sometimes I'm momentarily wistful when I think about how self-publishing authors maintain 100% control over their books. Right now, I'm gearing up for publication of my memoir,…
