Self-Publishing Services and Defamation

In light of this, here’s my plan: I need a volunteer to write a book that says a lot of defaming things about me. Preferably stuff that isn’t actually true. (Surely I’ve pissed off enough of you that I should have a church full of volunteers). You publish your book through PublishAmerica, who promises editorial oversight of your product (plus that dollar advance!)

Then I sue you and PublishAmerica for millions.

BRILL!!!

Okay legal scholars, tell me why this wouldn’t work.
