Scifi Guy

Larry Clopper of PublishAmerica inserts foot here.

"We have a thousand authors who have not had one book printed. That goes to prove we take the same risk in publishing anything as every other mainstream publisher."

Shisa. This is functionally and factually wrong because they print at least two copies per author. A thousand lucky authors didn't sell one copy. Good for them, but that doen't say much for the publisher and their mission if it's to sell books.

"publicity surrounding Atlanta Nights and PublishAmerica has not caused the publisher to change anything, Clopper said. "We have nothing to apologize for," he said. "There are people out there who say things about people who enjoy enormous success. We don't call people names. That's not just all of what we're about. We're about honesty and integrity."

Ooh boy. Masters of mass deception indeed. I believe him though. PA won't change a thing or go out of business because of the general public's lack of training in logic and the legal system's imadequacies in fraud of this type.

Ah that explains everything.

Larry is apparently making crack money, as opposed to PA authors who only make cigarette money.

And given that statement, he's smoking some too.

The question is how can the business continue with these sort of joke assertions in mainstream press? Alas I suspect indefinitely.
