Well, I'm doing that right now, and not making any money.  But that's
because I'm doing it as a publisher.  If you want to make money with it,
have the writers pay you for the layout, design, production aspect.
Once you do it because you want to publish a promising author you'll
have stacks of unsold books sitting around your office.

Good Luck!
