(cc) Publish & be Damned!!

Now I wonder why there isn't more of a push for these in the FoxPro world - here, you can design, publish and sell your own books.

I say this not trying to create competition among the FoxPro publishers (of whom there are very few) but rather to the segment of the developer community who believe they can write their own book or compile their own articles into such a book.

Speaking of self-publishing, Whil, where did that "Aliens will never forgive us for disco" book go?

Hi Andrew.

Have you seen It is also a publishing site, but it seems to have some advantages such as they are cheaper, and they don't expect you to buy any copies of your book at all.

They make their money by taking 20% of the profit of the book, though it you choose to set the price of the book such that there is no profit they will still print it.

All up, I was quite impressed by thier service. I must admit that I've been trying to come up with something I want to publish becasue it's just so tempting :-)
