“At a time when publishing is changing, when delivery of story has changed more thoroughly than at any time since Guttenberg, the mid-list authors are finding it harder and harder to find a traditional publisher to stick with them,” stated Yolen. “And though they backlist fine, they are not mega-bestsellers on the front end.”
