Cellar Door's DIY review column

Newly launched Cellar Door Publishing apparently is cutting out the middle man: It's starting its own review column:
"Competition exists in every industry," states [publisher Jade] Dodge. "But this industry is unique in its strong sense of community and support. The review column focuses on books our reviewers feel have been overlooked. All reviews are positive, making them more like recommendations than reviews."

In addition to books published through Cellar Door, the column will also feature books published by competing companies.

"Some people might view this as an odd business practice," states Dodge," but to me it was just common sense. Having this element of cohesiveness between publishing companies can only help to strengthen the industry, which benefits everyone."
Ed, are you paying attention?
