Print On Demand

I am contemplating another P.O.D. venture. (That is, “print on demand”–the

modern form of vanity publishing.) I did one before via the P.O.D. firm

Xlibris http://www.olimu.com/FireFromSun/FireFromSun.htm . It wasn’t a

sensationally bad experience, but I think I’d like to try a different P.O.D.

firm this time. Any readers who have had HAPPY expeiences with a P.O.D.

firm, please email & tell me about it (olimu@optonline.net). If you don’t

mind, I’d like to know how much the venture cost you. My idea is to do a

collection of my pieces. Of the hundreds of essays, reviews & fragments of

fugitive journalism I’ve done these past few years, there’s a handful I’d

like to gather together & preserve in some format more durable than pixels.

When I mentioned this to a publisher the other day, he ran for the elevator.

Publishers hate that kind of thing–no market for it. Fine, but I’d like to

do it anyway. All suggestions gratefully received.
