(Cross-posting from the Writer's Forum, since not everybody on the Watch is a member and I want to make sure everyone sees this. Deer, would you consider stickying this? Thanks!)

We've just wrapped up a month of posts about scammy publishers at Indies Unlimited. If you're thinking of going with a particular publisher, I'm begging you to please please PLEASE check out our coverage first. Here's a link to all the posts:

TL;DR? David Gaughran's guest post, in particular, was really good. I'd recommend you read that, if nothing else.

I'd hate to see anybody at the Watch caught by one of these outfits.

Thanks for this, ali! Basically, if they want you to pay THEM, run away. Smile
