A second key to look for when trying to determine whether an author wants to work with a vanity publisher are the services that are provided to help the author with their book. A true vanity publisher will offer no services to an author and will take a work and publish it "as is", no matter how many spelling or grammatical errors the work contains. If an author just wants to see their book in print, then this will not be an issue. However, if an author wants to have a book they are proud of displaying, then having the option to take advantage of editorial and design services is a necessity in any publisher they choose. More recently, hybrid vanity publishing houses have emerged which are changing the way the public is looking at vanity publishing. Author House, IUniverse, Lulu, UPublish, Xlibris are all examples of hybrid vanity presses. Like vanity presses, they will publish any work for a fee, no matter the quality of the work with no editorial quality assurance review. However, these houses have added editorial and design services that an author can pay for, thus making them not true vanity houses, but rather vanity hybrids. If an author takes advantage of the editorial, cover design and layout services, these presses can produce excellent work.
Another type of publishing under the self-publishing umbrella is what is euphemistically called Vanity publishing or a Vanity press. A vanity publisher is one which will publish any book as long as an author is willing to pay for it. Because it is almost impossible for someone to get into a traditional publishing house as an unknown, vanity presses are very attractive to new authors. The name vanity publishing stems from the fact that certain publishers, for a fee, will publish any work by appealing to an authors vanity. These authors would be willing to pay a fee to see their name in print, no matter what the quality of the manuscript. As such, vanity presses gained a reputation of being more interested in the money they got from the authors than in the quality of work since the author takes on not only all the costs but also all the risks of the success of their book. Basically then, vanity presses have nothing to lose by publishing any type of work.
If you have a large bathroom with lots of users, a double vanity might be more ideal for you. A double his & hers bath vanity mirror would be more convenient especially during the busy mornings when everyone needs to use the bathroom. You would also find a great deal of double vanities here that come in assorted styles and finishes. The Vortex double bath vanity, item number BVE- 1145, has a modern look with a transparent glass countertop. It comes with two vessel glass sinks, a 3-drawer cabinet and stainless steel towel bars and wall brackets. Three different colors are available: maple, mahogany and black. You can find this product for sale in Bath Vanity Experts for $2,297. Not everyone could afford a pricey vanity set though, and you might be looking for just a bath vanity mirror. If you still have an old vanity that can be salvaged and re-used, it would save you a lot of money to buy a single piece mirror instead of the whole vanity set. Bath Vanity Experts also has a lovely selection of other bathroom fixtures like mirrors, medicine cabinets, bathtubs and towel warmers. The style varies from Roman/Victorian to modern & contemporary. For a classic look with an affordable price tag, they have the Im So Distressed Oval Oak Mirror (item number BVE-0600) which costs $227. Its dimensions are: 25.5" W x 34" H. The retail price of this product is around $400, but this vendor is offering it for way less the original price. It is made of quality oak wood and comes in an old distressed finish to match any old wooden vanity you might have lounging around your house.
