Self-publishing reconsidered

And almost in response to the last post, a piece in the Irish Independent discussing a self-publishing conference over there with a couple of interesting self-publishing examples:

Paying for your work to be published used to be considered madness, but now, according to Eoin Purcell: “The way the technology has changed means that it is facilitating transparency in the self-publishing process… .” In other words, you may be paying for it, but you can see exactly what you are getting for your money. The difference between the POD services, such as blurb.com or lulu.com and conventional ‘vanity’ publishing is, according to Purcell, “they are not charging you 2.5k to print a hundred copies. You print what you want and they charge a margin on each copy they sell you”.
