Quotes

"Maybe the old publishing model was just hard for me, because I'm someone who doesn't like to be told what to do," Schafer says. "that's maybe a bit childish, but that's the way i am. and i think that's the way a lot of indies are. they're independent. they don't like anybody acting like their parents, claiming they know what to do. [publishers] aren't your parents. they're a business and you're a business, and when it comes down to it they're going to do what's right by them. that can be a dangerous thing for anyone just starting out."
