In times past self-publishing was derided as vanity publishing. Today it´s not only vanity projects that are taking the self-publishing route, many well-known authors are also turning to self-publishing.
Award-winning Faulkner author John Edgar Wideman chose to publish his new collection of short stories through Lulu.com; the site, offering authors an 80/20 revenue split, has purportedly published over 1.1 million authors and adds 20,000 new titles to its catalogue a month.
