That’s right. It’s sad, but true. There are people out there trying to suck authors dry of their hard-earned money. These predators include publishers, editors, agents, and more. It’s hard to know who the good guys are sometimes, especially for newbie authors.
Indies Unlimited is running a special during the month of March (yeah, I know, I’m late), featuring articles and guest posts about scammers and their victims. Make sure to check it out, and please share and spread the word, so we can hopefully prevent others from being scammed. You can find a running update of everything in the #PublishingFoul series here: http://www.indiesunlimited.com/tag/publishingfoul/
And please, even if you have NOT been a victim, please take a moment to complete and share our #PublishingFoul Scammer Survey. It’s fast, easy, anonymous, and free – and you don’t have to log in to anything to take it. We’re hoping to get a big response on this so we can take it to the media. Raising awareness is the only way we can stop these scammers. Thanks for your help.
