The Dangers of Self-publishing

Yesterday afternoon, I passed through Hay-on-Wye.  Naturally, I could not resist the legendary bookshops.  In the last, before reluctantly turning for home, I found a book that should serve as a warning to all self-publishing authors: you may be gilt-embossing your stupidity.

No amount of faux-leather hardbacking will make it better.

And no, I didn’t buy it – I snapped and ran.

    Good idea. How do I do that?

  3. In WordPress, it should eb something like: Options->Discussion
    Then Check “Allow link notifications from other Weblogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.)
