Authors, don’t be blinded by the name!

If you’re an author, or know one, please read David Gaughran’s post titled: “Simon & Schuster Joins Forces With Author Solutions To Rip Off Writers”.

With the rise in popularity of self-publishing, it’s no surprise that the Big 6 publishers are trying to find ways to get in on the action, but for Penquin, who purchased Author Solutions in July, and now Simon & Schuster to go into business with them is disturbing if not despicable.

Please read David’s article about the Simon & Schuster deal with Author Solutions (one of many warning articles on this deal published this week) to educate yourself, so you can warn other hopeful writers against being blinded by the big publisher name.

  1. Thanks for sharing, Linda. Sometimes all of this stuff is enough to make me want to go back to the days where I got off work and simply sat down and watched television rather than kill myself trying to make it as a writer. *sigh* It’s very sad.
    I hope the holiday season finds you and yours happy and well taken care of, my dear friend. Talk to you soon. *waves*
