Nick Green's Cat tale

On The Guardian Books blog, Ann Giles explains how children's author Nick Green responded to being dropped by Faber by self-publishing using Lulu.
Nick Green's first novel, The Cat Kin, was published by Faber last June and went on to garner a glowing review from in The Times and a wave of enthusiasm on Amazon. Six months later, the publisher decided not to bring out the second of Green's proposed trilogy due to poor sales. Poor sales? With a book as good as The Cat Kin, you've got to ask what kind of marketing support the publisher had given it.
