A friend brought a Publishers Weekly article to my attention, about a scam used to get bookstores to order a title by a POD press.

You should also read this lively entry on the Seattle Mystery Bookstore's blog by JB Dickey.

And don't miss the Writer Beware blog information about the "publisher" in the post, Author Identity Publishing Redux.

I'll soon write more about some of the issues this story raises for new writers.

Thanks for the link. Seems pretty skeezy.

Hi there, Steven. And I agree. Made me shudder.
