I want to announce a major addition to Self-Publishing Review: Mick Rooney’s self-publisher reviews (print on demand outfits, subsidy publishers, printers) are now housed on the site. He’s really the best writer on this subject working online, so it’s a great boon to the site. If you want more of his help, he’s recently put out To Self-Publish or Not to Self-Publish (Amazon link).
This is Mick Rooney’s Independent Publishing Magazine’s Publishing Services Index updated October 2011, grading publishing services from best to worst.
DIY – Do-it-yourself services
ASS – Author Solutions Services (Packages)

About the Author: Henry Baum
I’m the author of The American Book of the Dead. The novel won Best Fiction at the DIY Book Festival and the Gold IPPY Award for Visionary Fiction. Largehearted Boy says it's "reminiscent of Philip K. Dick and Haruki Murakami, a book that boldly explores the future and defies genre." I'm also the author of North of Sunset, winner of the Hollywood Book Festival Grand Prize, and The Golden Calf - first published by Soft Skull Press, with editions in the U.K. (Rebel Inc.) and France (Hachette Littératures). Visit henrybaum.com for more information. I’m the editor of Self-Publishing Review.
