As always, Strauss provides an excellent Writer Beware list. Her spotlight on the scams writers face is one of the most valuable resources writers can consult.

  1. Thank you for sharing this post! It is very disappointing if the publisher you thought you knew was a fake and just want to publish your work as his/her own.

    • Hi! There’re a lot of people who want to take advantage of others’ dreams. The takeaway for me: be very careful about any “publisher” who wants you to pay anything. Be sure you know what you’re paying for–and if you can, do it yourself! Thanks for weighing in.
