Thanks for posting the link! The Guardian article was interesting; some of the basic info has been raised by other articles and bloggers (be sure to edit, think carefully about your genre, be prepared to do a lot of marketing yourself), but there were different twists and angles that were interesting and new.
Again, thanks for sharing!

Terrific article but I'm not easily carried away by rah-rah self publishing articles. I ran a check on the Waterstones book store mentioned. Admittedly I don't know UK POD companies but I don't think any produced by CS, Lulu or LSI were listed. How soon books produced by those three will show up in high-street windows is still a mystery.
