I discovered this article ‘Vanity Book Publishing And Self-Publishing Are Not The Same – by Derek Haines’ on The Story Reading Ape’s blog. I think it’s important that we all know the difference. Thank you, Chris and Derek.
on Just Publishing Advice:
Vanity book publishing has a bad reputation, and it is no surprise why this is so.
If you are a new author, beware of publishers who offer to publish your book.
Also be just as wary of publishers you discover that say a lot about publishing your book, but almost nothing about how much it will cost or how they will help you market your book.
There is a very big difference between vanity book publishing and self-publishing.
