Book Country Fail

Via Scoop.itWriting and reading fiction

Okay, I gotta interrupt my blogging hiatus to warn newbie authors against a new program from Penguin that made me throw up in my mouth when I read about it.   Book Country, which debuted in April as a place for authors to post their work for critique, recently announced a program to turn manuscripts posted on their website into ebooks and paper books:   “Our self-publishing process has been designed by a team of book industry professionals to make the experience as accessible, convenient, and affordable as possible.”   For $549 they will format your ebook and print book, and then upload it to retailers.   Or for $299 they will let you do your own formatting, and then upload the book to retailers.   Huh?
