If you get approached like this and you’re not sure whether an entity is a legit publisher or a vanity press, PLEASE do some homework before you engage and ESPECIALLY before you part with any money. ALLi (the Alliance of Independent Authors) keeps a list of service ratings and report – a Watchdog Desk – that can help you separate the wheat from the chaff. Click HERE to find out more about ALLi.
Wishing everyone health, happiness, and great reads! – D.F. Hart
