POD Does Not Mean Poo On Demand

Posted: April 18, 2012 in Links

As an author whose publisher uses Print on Demand (POD) through Lightening Source, I’ve already come across some misconceptions about POD when I tried to convince some local bookstores to carry copies of Painted Black.  Some people don’t get that POD with Lightening Source is a technology, not a business model.

Here’s another take on some of the stigma attached to POD.

Next time you order a book online, consider this: odds are increasing that the book itself hasn’t been printed yet. Welcome to the world of on-demand printing, where books live electronically on a hard drive somewhere until someone wants a copy.
