There is a new scam out there in the Epublishing world. A company called e-Publishing Revo is offering to publish your ebook for the *sarcasm* low price of $299.

We revert back to Yogg's law on this one. Money flows from the publisher to the author, never the reverse. There is a full write up on this scam including some great information on author royalties at WriterBeware.
