United...We Write!

Last week, on the 4th of July, we celebrated the 235th anniversary of the birth of the United States of America. But what exactly were we celebrating? Was it merely the beginning of a Revolution, the founding of a new nation, or was it, perhaps, something experiment in governance whose impact would change the way the world perceived both nations and kings?

At the very heart of July 4th is the inspired document of the Declaration of Independence. The purpose of which was to announce to the world that the People of the thirteen United Colonies were one People and in their name, and by their authority, to dissolve the political bands which had connected them with another People.

For those of you who missed it, the alliance of three independent award-winning authors announced the formation of "a more perfect union" and proclaimed their independence from the Old World publishing model. As a collaborative collective, Wayne Thomas Batson, Christopher Hopper and the Miller Brothers have united in the Spirit of freedom and for the good of authors everywhere.
