Publish and Perish

without comments

Great article from back in December on NPR about self-publishing.

They’re a little late to the party if they just discovered that self-publishing is not vanity publishing, but then they go ahead and promote a vanity publication house — Archway, the You-Pay-We-Publish arm of Simon & Schuster.

The comments section is interesting. One poster claims that traditional publishing houses will keep your book in print by printing a copy or two every year via print-on-demand, just to hold their claim on the copyright. Is there any evidence that’s true, or is this just the latest ranting of the conspiracy theorist mob? No idea.
