Trivia Question

According to last week's issue of WritersWeekly.com, which how many copies do BookLocker.com authors need to sell in order to recoup their investment? And, which P.O.D. publisher has the worst return on investment?

This Week's Prize:

A FREE At-Your-Service Publishing Package from BookLocker.com! A $675 value! Includes black-and-white-interior print book publication, original, full-color cover design, basic epub/mobi (ebook) formatting/conversion, and more! See what's included HERE.

The Fine Print: The winner's manuscript must be high quality, and not violate any of BookLocker's policies (i.e. no libel, no illegal material, etc.). The final manuscript must be submitted to BookLocker for formatting within two weeks of the winner being notified.
