I came across this article on the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America site today, here.
I’ve been vaguely aware of PublishAmerica for a while, mainly for their notoriously shady and author-unfriendly business practices:
‘Defendant provides very poor editing services, is slow to respond to book orders, and it routinely overprices the books it publishes. This is no accident. Defendant will only lower the price of its clients’ books to a competitive rate for a $399 fee. These practices make it difficult for even the most enterprising authors to promote their own books.‘
It seems like the chickens might be coming home to roost for PA.

Oh, dear. I hadn’t heard about this. It’s a step towards getting the crooks out of the self-pub industry and making it feasible, so yay!
btw, I didn’t post on the other blog post, but good luck with the professional editing on your book! I hope you get what you need from it. 🙂
Thanks Rhiannon! Lynn O’Dell at RedAdept has got rave reviews from about 40 writers on the Writers Cafe board, so I’m sure it’s going to be really useful.
