The Book Standard carries an article about a modest trend whereby some established and pretty big-time authors are deliberately choosing to be published by small, independent publishers, rather than by the big guys.
The main example quoted is that of Stephen King, who has handed a whole new book to Charles Ardai, owner/operator of paperback publisher Hard Case Crime. Author and small publisher now have a bestseller on their hands. Other examples are quoted.
Hmm. What could possibly cause these successful writers to prefer small firms to big ones? Very puzzling.
