Later today (I thought it would be already), I put Bad Apple on Kindle. Then I do Sweeps, I guess, if I can figure a cover. Months ago I said I had enough work facing me that I wouldn't be free until the spring of '11. It might even be into the summer, if I'm ever "free" in the same way again.
I don't have anything smart to say, any good advice to offer except don't view my experience as somehow being out of the ordinary. As much as I like to think of myself as extra-ordinary, in this, I'm not. The only thing that might set me apart is I'm very willing to give up tradpub while other writers seem to be reluctant.

The question is raised. In life, when is the right time to leave? When do you know for certain things aren't going to get any better? Are you better off leaving just a little bit early rather than a little too late? History abounds with examples where people gambled wrongly and lost.
