I am flabbergasted by the sheer volume of wrong, wrong, wrong information in this article on CNN.com, trumped up with lots of quotes from self-publishing marketing staff without any word about the vast and overwhelming majority of self-pubbed authors that lost money on their crazy scheme, or worse – fell victim to a scam operation spouting this kind of rah-rah claptrap.
So, you tell me, fair readers, everything wrong in the article.
I’ll start. Did you know that I, apparently, don’t keep my own copyright because I sold my book to a major, big league, publishing company? The author of this article seems to think I don’t keep my copyright.
Was this article written by the marketing manager for LuLu or iUniverse? Might as well have been.
CNN, you failed even the basic test of factual accuracy.
