Have you heard of these book publishing scams? (re-blog)


Here is a really useful warning for new writers about the less savory side of being the ‘new kid on the block’ – and the maxim ‘If it sounds too good to be true – it probably is’ has never been truer. Re-blogged from Suzan St Maur AMIPA : http://howtowritebetter.net/book-publishing-scams-three-stinky-examples/ 

I was approached by Authorhouse and hounded via email for months – and although I had never heard of them when they first approached me, I soon realised that any company that continually bombards you with emails (harassment, basically) is to be avoided at all costs. I flagged them as Spam!

I hope no-one who reads this has been caught out, but if you have, please tell us your story as a warning to others.

  1. I am a new author and looking at Book Baby and Book Venture. They both claim they will help me the formatting, which is really what I need, but the pricing is so different. Book Venture seems to good to be true. Anyone work with either before?
