Why I accuse the publisher for book flaws


I read Isaac Mwangi’s book review in the last edition of Lifestyle titled Glory Be to Corruption in God’s Name! with a keen interest. As much as I agreed with the observations he made, I felt like he directed the heat on the author, and yet the publisher, too, should be upbraided for the theological and other mistakes found in Kiuna’s book.

In these days when there are many people who masquerade as publishers, it is not hard to land in the hands of an impostor. Many up-and-coming authors, unaware or ignorant of the value addition to a manuscript by the publisher, assume that once they have written a manuscript, then the next thing to do is get a designer to set it and then whisk it to a printer to make copies for distribution.
