Vanity Publicity

Some warrior anti-pod publisher folks are up in arms about this mainstream reference to Publishamerica. After reading it I'm not. The reviewer from the Detroit Free Press is simply using them and authorhouse as examples of a growing pod slushpile dished to reviewers by the authors. We know the vanity publishers wouldn't be bothered. The moral is this: when anyone can do it, the value drops to next to nothing.

Where's all the controversy? I Googled Detroit Free Press and PublishAmerica and got nothing that references the original story.

Got some links?

Yeah, it's an internal "fight the scammers" controversy from former and current PA authors and Ann Crispin of Writer Beware on absolutewrite forum. It's the only place it's mentioned. Crispin feels that even mentioning the company with a link will enourage more victims. I was the first to go to the FTC two years ago. I was banned from all the forums for advocating such a line of attack. Typical sheep groupthink like you witnessed on pod-dy.

Zack Shutt is it? Stick your opinions up your ass. Concern yourself with your own sorry ideas, and don't worry about my career plans and strategies. I have them under control. You, are a nonentity: a troll who leaves derogatory reviews of POD books you haven't read for personal reasons. All you ae is an attack slug. Crawl back under your vanity rock. You are the weakest link. Goodbye.
