A little writing/publishing advice for the day:
If you’re thinking about publishing a book, make sure to Google the publisher you’re thinking of working with. If you see that they’ve got a lot of complaints, run the other way.
If you see that they’ve got a BBB rating of F, run.
If they’re written up in Editors and Predators, run.
If they’re posted on Writer, Beware, run.
If they’re on Absolute Write as a fraud, run.
If they’re on half a dozen blogs as a scam, run.
Do your homework, folks. Don’t be so eager to see your name in print that you fall for a scam. This is your name on the line, your reputation. Make sure it’s being handled by somebody competent. At least make sure the company’s LEGAL. Otherwise, you might find that you’re being ripped off, and you have to fight tooth and nail just to get back the work that was yours in the first place. Chances are, you won’t ever see the money you should have earned.
Don’t fall for a scam.
