THE ROCK: For an author, is having a publishing contract with a "traditional publisher" important professionally? Why?
Tize: Going with a traditional publisher can be important if you are without the finances to not just publish a book, but market it properly. Through a traditional publisher they have the funds to mass market, which helps you reach a larger number of people in a shorter amount of time giving you a larger market base. Having a large market base helps you lower your prices and increase the amount of book sales.
