They don’t pay enough…

Oh dear. Sad story about yet another publisher – Lonely Planet – which doesn’t check the credentials of its writers.

Lonely Planet reeling after author’s fraud | NEWS.com.au reports:

“An email to management posted on the company’s internal authors’ forum describes Mr Kohnstamm’s book as ‘a car crash waiting to happen’.

‘Why did you (management) not understand that when you hire a constant stream of new, unvetted people, pay them poorly and set them loose, that someone, somehow was going to screw you?’ author Jeanne Oliver wrote.”

Read the entire story. It’s enough to make you shudder.
