Christine Feehan I haven’t had issues other than with Dark Prince where Dorchester cut 100 pages. That’s why there is now an “Author’s Cut”. My current publisher works with me and my staff as a team. They’ve not asked me to change an end, a chapter or a storyline.
As far as covers go, I am consulted about covers to new books and I do have a say in that. They will often send several ideas to choose from.
There’s been issues in the industry as a whole about word count but that has to do with the fact that there’s only one printer for all of the traditional publishers, which creates quite a challenge. So, some authors are asked to bring their word count down, but as far as asking me to change a story, that’s not happening.
The one thing traditional publishing brings is distribution. I don’t know how independently published authors get distribution into bookstores, Walmart, libraries, etc. I know some of them do. But, I like that my publisher does all of that distribution for me.
I do see so many people self-publishing quite successfully and I think it’s a good idea for all writers to know how to self-publish. I read many independently published authors and have found many great books.

Christine Feehan I have had a few books put into trade paperback, but not many. It's actually not up to me at all whether or not a book is put into a certain format.
