It seems as if new self-publishing companies spring up every day, and separating the wheat from the chaff can be difficult. Fortunately Mick Rooney over at POD, Self Publishing and Independent Publishing maintains a ranked list of self-publishing companies and printers. I’m not surprised to see CreateSpace and Lightning Source in the top two spots. The rankings can change based on feedback from customers.
Currently the index covers print solutions only. As eBooks gain popularity, everyone and their uncle is offering to host and sell them, so it would be great to see an equivalent ranking of eBook venues.
Reviews of some of the companies are available from the right sidebar of Rooney’s blog. While you’re there, have a good look around. It’s a great blog to follow.
