Untangle the Publishing Web of Lies
We are beginning an informative series of videos with the purpose of protecting you from con-artists.
The video series is called “Honestly in Publishing”. The purpose of this series is to help you, the author, understand the difference between what is real and what is “sleazy salesmanship”, to be able to recognize the con-artists before they take your money and you end up with a book full of regrets. If you are experienced in self-publishing, you already know there are, sadly, a lot of them.
We intend to help you not be a victim.
We have more experience (21 years and 80,000 titles) in the self-publishing business than almost every organization there is, and are very much in an expert position to know what is out there and what you need to watch for.
- What is a publisher sales representative tell you that your book will be in bookstores?
- What if they tell you they ‘partner’ with a traditional publisher and your book will be distributed to the traditional publisher’s network?
- What if they tell you your book is perfect to become a screenplay and a movie?
- And…the ‘uh oh’…what if you sign up, pay your money, and then find out you’ve been lied to? What to do then?
“Honesty in Publishing” answers all these and more…for your protection, please watch!
As we begin this new “Honesty in Publishing” series, I ask that you take a few minutes (this one is 12 minutes long) and watch it. We are trying to help people, just like yourself, understand the difference between a con-artist and a trusted publisher – the specific methods you can use to protect yourself. There are several topics we will cover, and we hope that you take some notes and list a few questions to ask us.
With falsified reviews, elaborate charges, and a slew of lies, there is sadly much to uncover in the world of publishing. We hope this is the first step in helping you untangle the web of confusion so you don’t get caught in it.
