"During the recession, having a 1-800 number and a full-time employee to staff the phone was an expense I decided to cut. Also, it was easier to receive e-mails from international authors and publishers rather than deciphering accents over the phone and figuring out international time zones to call them back (12 midnight in Los Angeles is 8am in London, etc.) Any author or publisher that wishes to talk via phone is more than welcome to make an appointment with us via e-mail.” —Jeffrey Keen, i310 Media Group, President & CEO
