Authors Beware: What You Must Know to Avoid Being Fleeced by the Publishing Predators

If you're writing or publishing a book, beware that Publishing Predators are around every corner, just waiting to trap you and your credit card number.

How do you spot them?

  • They will print and bind your book at your expense and give you "as many books as you can afford," even if the book is poorly written.

  • They promise you a bestselling book if you sign with them.

  • They claim your book will get in front of the acquisition team of a certain "New York publishing house."

  • They pump you up by telling you that "everyone" is a potential customer because of your topic and, as a result, you'll sell more copies.

You sign on the dotted line.

Then they try to upsell you to expensive services like their $20,000 "marketing package."

Six months later, after you've been fleeced, you realize you've been had. Don't let this happen to you! In this 90-minute webinar, you will learn:
