Any publisher you want to be dealing with not only publishes you for FREE, but they pay you for the privilege. Not just a token buck, either.
So you're saying that PA is better than an out-and-out vanity publisher like Xlibris or Vantage because they don't charge you (much) up front? They make it up on the back side. In what other way are they better?
If all you want is to hold a copy of your book in your hand with your name on the cover, then PA is probably the way to go. If you're looking for readers, though, you should be going in another direction.
Tell you what -- a year from now come back and list what you've paid out of pocket for your PA experience and how many readers you've found, then tell me that you didn't go with a vanity press.
Why do I care what you do with your time and money? Believe it or not, I care about you and about your book. I'm assuming that you've written a book worth reading. I want you to find your readers. And I don't want you to go broke in the meantime.
I would certainly suggest that all new PA authors wait a while after their first book comes out, to see how all the rosy-glasses wishful thinking compares with reality, before they submit a second or third book to PA.
