Writer Beware!

While researching the ins and outs of self-publishing, I ran across a handy little blog that has been instrumental in helping me be aware of the darker corners of the industry.  This blog is called “Writer Beware” and can be found here.

I wanted all the self-publishing readers out there who read me to see this, because it has been very helpful in giving me some real world help.  I have found out more about what not to do and who not to trust by reading this blog than from talking to any writers or listening to my critics.  (And I LOVE my critics).  

Pop on over to this blog and check it out.  For every e-published author out there who knows the dangers of the industry there are probably 100 or so who don’t have a clue and are bouncing around out there in the dark just waiting to slam into one of the people this blog warns them about, and they often get bit.

When I published my first novel back in 2009, I didn’t really know the industry like I do now.  I wish I would have had friends who turned me on to sites like this that help little novelists like me get with the program, and not get fooled.  Here’s to hoping you don’t fall victim to one of these charlatans.
