Harlequin becomes a vanity press

http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/11/17/the-authors-hearts-beat-faster-publishing-was-so-close-now/?ref=books

"According to Brent Lewis, vice president of digital and Internet for Harlequin, editors at Harlequin will not vet the books. Author Solutions will charge $599 or more to publish and distribute books, mostly in digital form, and will split those revenues with Harlequin."

And of all the print on demand providers they could have used, they choose to do business with Author House, the people that have scammed millions of authors.

Yet more proof publishers don't care about authors, they just care about making as much money as they can from them.
