By that definition (a real book that could be autographed and given as a door prize) I guess I qualify.

Even if you add a press run of thousands of copies.

I used to work at Xerox on the development team for DocuTech (a large, 130 pages per minute copier/printer). I created one of the test documents used to test the binder/finisher. Except for the copies that went home to be used as coloring books for the kids, all of the books we printed were trashed.

If you include self-published books, then anyone who has an e-book can be a "published author" for under $50. Just send me your e-book (up to 500 pages) and cover art and I'll have it printed, bound, and shipped to you. And it won't be with a tape binding (like we used on DocuTech) either, but either a Wire-O or Perfect binding (just like the paperbacks in the book stores).

Is that what you mean by a published author? Or do you mean someone whose books have an ISBN and are published by a company that also sells them and sends the author royalty checks?
