A good thing to Know

I just lost a day of production, because I spent the day, in which I thought I was about to get published, when all it was and come down to being was a vanity.

A vanity press or publisher, or subsidy publisher is a term describing a publishing house in which  authors pay to have their books published… Wikipedia.com

Thank you Earl Hamner, creater of The Waltons (John Boy Walton). In his episode 10, season 3 you can watch, when John Boy gets his first book of short stories published and later gets billed for the books. This is good information to have.
