Rise of the POD Monster

There is another very interesting article about the rise in POD publishing/Subsidy publishing in the business section of the Guardian Newspaper in England this week. It is written by John Sterlicchi. In his article, he says:

“While self-publish companies stress the ease-of-use of their tools there is no doubt that authors – particularly those older and less computer-savvy – may be intimidated by going it totally alone. This has led to a subset of the self-publishing trend … the rise in ‘assisted self-publishing’ or ‘subsidy publishing’ from companies such as Ecademy Press and AuthorHouse.”

Here is the link to the full article.
