Penguin's New Business Model: Exploiting Writers Bewares

I don’t normally post here just to inform you of articles I have written elsewhere, but I think this one is important.

Most of you will have heard the news that Penguin’s parent Pearson has purchased the infamous self-publishing services company Author Solutions (owners of Author House, iUniverse, Xlibris, Trafford and many more).

I have written about the deal in a column for IndieReader today. You can read that post here: Penguin’s New Business Model: Exploiting Writers.

Given the nature of that post, I would appreciate you sharing it as widely as possible.

Enjoy your weekend!

He writes novels under another name, has helped thousands of authors build a readership with his books, blogs, workshops, and courses, and has created marketing campaigns for some of the biggest self-publishers on the planet.
