Someone told me the other day that Salt is a pod (print-on-demand) publisher, like Lulu. Is that true, do you know?

Dear Jane

Many Happy Returns for tomorrow!

No excuse for forgetting - you share a birthday with my beloved sister Sarah.

If you post this, you should get bought more free drinks at The Cafe Yumchaa than you can swallow!

Best wishes from Simon

Salt has used POD technology, yes. But not with every title. I'm not sure of the current position, though my own current book was first published as a hardback, which is not print-on-demand. In fact, I believe it's just gone out of print and will be reissued as a paperback. As for the others, I couldn't possibly comment. You'd need to ask Salt directly, I'm afraid.

Sorry, in case it's not clear, Salt is NOT a vanity publisher. You can't pay them to print your book, if that's what you meant. It's a normal publisher specialising in short fiction and poetry, but it does employ POD technology for some titles, largely to reduce warehouse costs, as I understand it.
