Holy mother of Gawd…this is mind-blowing. I guess I won’t go the route of Author Solutions.
NOTE: I notice that the writer of this mentioned that Writer’s Digest went to the dark side by sending subscribers an ad for AWAI (American Writers and Artists) and calling it crap. I respectfully disagree with it being crap. But don’t listen to me, just go to their site online and make your informed decision yourself. Here is the link: http://www.awaionline.com/about/

The media is more concerned with what Amazon might do in the future, than actual author exploitation by the world’s largest trade publisher: Penguin Random House.
Penguin Random House owns the world’s largest vanity press – Author Solutions – which is currently subject to a class action for deceptive business practices, breach of contract, unjust enrichment, and violation of business statutes in California, New York, and Colorado.
The court papers cover the same ground that I’ve been blogging about for the last three years, that Writer Beware has spent even longer documenting, and others like Emily Suess and Mick Rooney have covered in extensive detail.
