Going down the E-book publishing memory lane before the advent of print-on-demand (POD), the internet and all the fancy toys and softwares we now have, publishing a book, say a novel, required that person (usually the author) gets in touch with a vanity press (vanity publisher) and pay an amount of money (usually, a fortune) to have their books published. Plus, the author compulsorily had to sell the rights to the publishing house and accept an advance on future royalties.
