Create Space author interview on

I was really glad to learn some more about Create Space from a post on I've been curious who the main type of author using it is and also was curious how good their services were. This was especially interesting:

"Watch out for how you spend your money. Some of the services from CreateSpace or others may be performed by low-level workers (“$10 college students”) and billed at professional rates."

The numerous mentions of how important an editor is was really reinforcing of the article I read on Digital Book  World today about the same topic.

Great post Joel!

Self-publishing blogs

Just saw this link on

Looks interesting. Hoping to take a look at them soon. Wanting to learn what I can about self-publishing with all the talk that it will be "the wave of the future"--to use a term that probably dates me immensely. But it seems that with this new avenue there will be many more design opportunities.
