I happened to catch a commercial last night. This was set in a college class about writing. The professor was explaining how a very SMALL percentage of writers would be published. So much money needed to be put out for promotion, publicity, et al.
And this young man stands up and says not true. Xerox will help them publish their books. Xerox? WTF? Are you kidding me?
Okay. Several problems. I am doubting there is ANY type of an editor involved. This will give those of us who have POD a bad name. Okay, a worse name. You know, Staples will copy and collate for me. But I NEVER considered doing that. I mean, really. I can understand wanting to have a book published SO BAD. But Xerox? Come again? I'm simply stunned by this whole revelation.
And on a related note: The new PSP will read e-books. How awesome is that? Of course, being technologically behind as I am, I probably won't get one of those until one of my grandchildren feels sorry enough to give me their hand me downs.
