Vanity publishing - outside the BookWorld? (mild spoiler)

Very quick question, this.
Re-reading all the Next books in preparation for 'First Among Sequels,' I read 'Something Rotten' a little closer than I have done before. As such, the subject of Yorrick Kaine's origins became a bit more of an issue.
If Kaine came from a self-published Farquitt book which is outside of the Cat's knowledge, where are self-published books created? The Great Library is meant to hold every book and story ever thought of and supposedly every one of these stories are manufactured in the Well. But if a novel is published outside of the main Outlander publishing houses it seems to be excluded entirely. Does this mean that there's a parallel Library full of utter dross somewhere?
