this is basically a Vanity Press site, that will "publish" your book electronically or print-on-demand for $399-598 upfront. If you want them to advertise or attempt to market your book, there are extra fees ($300-750) for that. Who would be desperate enough to go this route rather than doing a DIY self-publishing thing?
Very Bad Writers, that's who.
The 19 year old author of "The A-Sex Bunny" includes, as part of his author's bio, a will stating he wants to be buried with journaling materials.
Who wouldn't want to read about "The Adventures of Fred Iguana Iguana" ? (yes, I typed that correctly).
Do you know the "101 Reasons I Am too Good for American Males" (Reason 82. You lack a cute little foreign accent. Reason 101. We despise you because you haven't created utopia.)?
I've read the summary for "Coming out of the Dark, The Homosexual Lie & 'She is a He' Clarification guide " and I still don't know what it's about.
And I didn't even look at the poetry, which is typically the most God-awful genre of all unpublished or self-published work.
But the crown jewel thus far, and how I came to be aware of this site, is from a local author who wants my library to buy his book. I'm not even sure if it's supposed to be fiction or memoir.

And what about the author, Mr. Bobby R. Wilson:?
...As a teenager, he began to indulge with different girls, astounding their world.
After joining the military, his outlook on life made him wise, touring the world with the U.S. Navy, gave him the experience he needed to enhance his mentality, indulging with women of different nationalities. He was there to please them sexually.

When it comes to the existence of people, he could be a teacher, but writing words to read is his expertise.
Indeed. Writing words to read is his expertise. Reading from the beginning to the end, to be read throughout its entirety is my expertise.
