I have always maintained that authors are the most valuable assets that publishers have. Without talented authors and the valuable content they produce, we wouldn't have a publishing industry. This isn't a controversial statement, but it's amazing how many authors argue that their publishers, particularly in trade publishing, do not value their work. This complaint commonly comes from mid-list authors who witness their bestselling counterparts receiving the majority of marketing dollars and attention.
