My E-Book Road: 4 - Harper Collins Imprint Gives No Advances

Curiouser and curiouser.

Harper Collins has recently announced a new imprint that would not provide any advances to writers (stupid) although this doesn't seem to be set in stone just yet. (Writers would get paid through some type of profit-sharing plan - check out MediaBistro for the best scoop on this story.)

Meanwhile, Joseph Weisenthal of paidContent.org, over at WashingtonPost.com, opines that this Harper Collins step is in reality a spin on the usual POD setup which would allow untested writers the opportunity to be published by HarperCollins without that nasty inventory risk.

I'm just wondering if Amazon's BookSurge bit correlates with this HarperCollins spin in some way ....
