View Full Version : Stats on POD books picked up by commercial pubs?

06-09-2005, 01:32 AM

I'm looking for stats about how many titles from POD presses like iUniverse and AuthorHouse have been picked up by commercial publishers. (I have stats on Xlibris.) I've written to the companies, but they don't seem eager to tell me. Anyone know where I can find this info?

You might want to ask Girl on Demand:


There's a contact email address at the site. While there, you might want to peruse her blog entries (she hasn't been blogging long). Very informative.

I love her blog! Someone just pointed it out on a thread yesterday, and I've been all over it. Great interviews. Maybe I will ask her...

The March archive on her blog lists the number of POD authors that have picked up by the majors. No stats though.
