Mighty Christian of you, Xulon!

I recently stumbled across a Google ad leading me toXulon Press, which promises:
Christian book publishing made fast, easy, and affordable

Have you written a Christian book? Xulon Press is the world's largest Christian publisher. We give Christian authors everything they need to get published.

Sounds good enough, if you're into that sort of thing. At least until you get to the claim that Xulon Press is
Affordable. Start for only $1,499, plus get up to 70% off when you buy copies.
Affordable? Compared to what?

Certainly not compared to print-on-demand pioneer iUniverse, whoseiUniverse, whose most lavish package is only $799.

Thanks, Xulon Press, for validating my post-election hunch: If you want to make money hand-over-fist in today's America, slap a cross or a fish on your product, raise the price, and wait for the rubes to send you money.

I guess that's one way to serve Jesus: Make sure that if he returns to America, it feels just like his old Judean stomping grounds. TrackBack
