Damn, $24.95 for a softcover? That's a little high.
I guess if he is getting a decent percentage though....

Uh,

Publish America is well known within the writing community as a VERY bad subsidy publisher. Usually you end up paying them more than you make for one of their books. Unless your brother has good marketing skills, its very unlikely this endeavor will make much money.

Usually the production quality of these books are bad. Often, retail stores simply will not carry a book put out by Publish America, no matter what the subject.

People who succeed with Publish America are usually people who are lecture circuit guru's who can self-market their book at their own seminars.

The last thing I ever had ANYTHING to do with my brother was Oct 7th, 2000, when in a fit of rage he descided to try putting a knife to my throat and scream at me how "he was over the fu**ing edge"

read his book? Not likely I won't even speak to the fool, let alone line his pockets. The only reason I found out was my grandmother told me when I called her friday night and she was so glad he "finally" got a "job".
At 42 I figured it was time the boy tried working for a living.

My mom's cousin is an author, too. If by "author" you mean "hacked out some POS which was never edited and then paid someone a fortune to print a few copies which will never sell."

Interesting, but I'll wait for some reviews to come out before I'd spend the money.

Your brother sounds like GoChiefs except for the knife part.
