We at Publishing Perspectives always strive for accuracy.  In light of some recent commentary on our story from Monday, A Book Deal That Was Too Good To Be True, we’d like to update readers to inform them of an inaccuracy in the piece.

The article incorrectly stated that author Jamie Hunter paid Strategic Book Marketing to publish Me and My Best Friend. In fact, Me and My Best Friend was published by Strategic Book Marketing under a contract with the author. “There was no cost to this author,” wrote Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Marketing in our comment thread. “We pay an advance/royalty of $1000 when 1000 books are sold, that way we can invest in marketing for our authors.”

We regret the error.
