Self-publishing exists. It’s not right for everyone, and the only option for some. For many like former Yankee pitcher, Fritz Peterson, self-publishing is the way to go.
Peterson’s 2009 publication, Mickey Mantle is Going to Heaven recounts baseball and humor in a light applicable to readers of all generations. You may recall the rather shocking news Peterson and fellow pitcher Mike Kekich made in the early 70’s. Check out this interview in which Peterson discusses his desire to self-publish in order to keep 100% of his content rights and preserve the essence of his story and message.
