« Wiping out illiteracy - one book at a time | Main | Stress Over Posting »



It's very interesting that you -- along with most people -- can no longer tell a self-published book from one produced by a traditional publishing house. If you look up Nobody's Investment on Amazon, you'll find the author published it through, one of the online POD self-publishing services.

Since they have not set up Search-Inside-the-Book, I can't comment on the page layout work, back cover design, etc. Those are some of the places where a self-publishing author is likely to need help to produce a quality book. But Mr. Meade's author bio indicates he has a background in newsletter publishing, so he may have been quite capable of doing his own, or getting professional help with, page layout and cover design.

That's a great example of where a customized package of just the author services needed can help an author produce a book they're proud of.
