The old saying if it’s too good to be true applies to everything…including writing. More specifically regarding getting your work published. Sometimes first time authors are so excited about seeing their work in print they’ll jump at the first publisher that comes along. Do your homework before signing with any publisher. How do they rate with the Better Business Bureau? Check them out on the Internet… are there any complaints? Do other authors have any difficulties in contacting anyone at the publishing house? Is there a sudden restructuring within the publishing house and if so, why? You’ve worked hard to complete your manuscript- don’t make the mistake of handing it over to a shady publisher.
