Definitions for "VANITY PRESS"
A publisher that specializes in the publication of books for which their authors pay all or most of the expenses. A Vanity Press accepts all manuscripts submitted, provides little or no editing, and exercises only limited marketing and selling effort to an attempt to sell the books.
