Normal Reputable Service Has Been Resumed

I’ve been away for the past week on a well earned break, so I just catching back up on news and correspondence. I came across Heny Baum’s article ‘Do Self-Publishing Services Take Advantage of Writers?’ over on It’s certainly a meaty debate, but the bottom line remains that authors looking to use a service need to educate themselves as much as possible before self-publishing a book. Just as in any business, there will always be companies whose primary aim is to extract the most from the person paying for the service. Likewise, there are many reputable self-publishing services out there who are happy to guide an author in a frank one-on-one exchange before the author parts with a cent. The key will always be for the author to match their expectations, requirements and budget to a suitable service.
