The Wrong Way to Get Published

Darren Di Lieto has gotten his work in print...through no fault of his own...and in precisely the wrong way. Luc Latulippe explains on his blog: "Turns out someone scraped the contents of his website and published it into a 350-page book being sold online for $100."

Suck factor is definitely high, as the resellers refuse to pull the book and the thing has a fake ISBN and the publisher appears to be fake and the distributor is incommunicado. So they've taken the word to the blogosphere. We found it at the Lady Porphyre's place, who found it via Uncle Warren.

Now that you know, pass it on. And, you know, don't buy the book.
