Cool!

But this bit from another writer featured:


"I wanted a publisher that would not collect the royalties," said Colleen Buckley, a Logan Township resident and author of the children's book "Grandma Kathy Has Cancer." "If they do that they become the owners."

makes my head hurt. :D

Yeah, I know. But honestly her little book is pretty niche, and if she sells through cancer support groups and the like, she probably won't do too badly.

I did my best to put up for 'traditional' publishing. The reporter asked me if I paid anything, and I gave her a brief lesson on the differences, trying not to sound like too much of a snob.
