KIRKUS REVIEWS VOL. LXXXIII, NO. 19 | 1 OCTOBER 2015By Rebecca FosterFrank Schaeffer, author of WHY I AM AN ATHEIST WHO BELIEVES IN GOD: How to give love, create beauty and find peace, found that self-publishing was a way to avoid the simplistic branding publishers can apply in the search for bestsellers.
