In this episode of The Write Good Books Podcast, Jason and Scott talk about some of the known scams in the publishing world, including bad (or even phony) publishers, as well as some of the things you should be aware of before signing a contract.
Note: During the podcast, we reference Writer Beware, Absolute Write, and Preditors & Editors. While we don’t necessarily endorse the opinions on these sites, we feel they are worth visiting for further research while seeking a publication.
