According to the Financial Times, a new self-publishing wing is to be offered by Simon & Shuster, as their response to the large increase of consumer interest in self-publishing.
However, elsewhere it is claimed that S&S intend to offer their basic self-publishing package from $1,599 USD, rising to $24,999 USD for the deluxe self-publishing package. So that's from just under £1,000 British Pounds Sterling up to £15,618.
Is this true?
Surely I can't be the only so-called indie author to laugh aloud at this.
