There’s a brand new web site,, that will publish your book in either hard cover or paperback without your having to pay a special fee or sign wwaowa contract. You just have to agree to buy the first five copies for $79. Additional books cost much less per copy as the number goes up. Authors earn royalties for any sales beyond the first five copies, with the percentage going up to 20 percent, depending on the number sold.

This is just one of a number of “print on demand” services available on the web. A point in this site’s favor is that it is operated by Peleman Industries, a publisher that has been in business for 69 years. Titles for sale at the site include “I Don’t Dress Dead People,” “Breaking Barriers: A Pictorial Journey through the Czech Republic and Croatia” and “How to Beat the Competition and Sell Your Writing.”
