Self Publishing Give It a Miss

Self-publishing of your books? They really are a bunch of crooks, They have you think your approaching wealth, But all you’ve done is fill your shelf So keep your cash in your pants, (If an offers real, they’ll pay an advance,) Why taste the crafty self-publishing honey? To get in print, takes more than money

Wise advice, Peter.....if one wishes to hand craft a few examples of one's own work, by hand or by computer or by mimeo or other means of production, that is a fine and creative process; but, to engage a "company" to produce your "product" for a fee seems a little self involved and, perhaps, disingenuous to me. Keep your money in your pocket or find someone or some "company" willing to publish based on their support for the merits of the work.

I really liked your poem. It was real funny but true! I've had 2 books published and it cost a lot and they charge for every little thing.
