A Hilarious Prank

Making Light: Atlanta Nights and PublishAmerica

Before this, I hadn't heard of "PublishAmerica". Now, I'm probably never going to forget them. PublishAmerica is a "vanity press", a press that an author pays in order to publish the author's book. PublishAmerica claims it's not a vanity press, though, and this has been a huge thorn in a lot of people's sides... including a number of authors. These authors produced "Atlanta Nights", a book of such astonishingly bad writing, that I, as a neophyte writer, cringed constantly with the few samples I've seen.

Jim McDonald wrote about the whole story on how this came about , and it's well worth a read through it.
