6 Self Publishing Rip-Offs Authors Must Avoid

The allure of publishing a book is so powerful that unsuspecting writers overpay for services or allow unscrupulous companies to rip them off.

We’re not referring to situations where you paid a fair price only to find out that the editor, copyeditor, or cover designer was mediocre. That’s your fault for making a poor choice. We are not referring to paying for services that you don’t have the time or inclination to perform yourself. Value is in the eye of the beholder.

We’re talking about rip-offs involving grotesque overpayment and purposeful deceit. Here are the warning signs of an impending rip-off:

If I were able to visit London right now, I would SO be checking out as many of the literary-themed BookBenches in Books about Town as I could find. The Narnia BookBench had lovely art by Mandii Pope, but I wish the BookBench website description had also given credit to the illustrator of the original book edition, Pauline Baynes, since the BookBench art was clearly an homage to the original.

EDITED 9:49 AM: Books About Town just tweeted to me: "So pleased you like the concept of Books about Town. We’ve now added the credit to the bench page. Thanks for highlighting!" Wow, thanks to the organizers for their quick response! Do check out their website for more info about their public art event.

Did you know that Pauline Baynes illustrated some of Tolkien’s early work, and that he had hoped she would illustrate The Lord Of The Rings? My blog post: http://inkygirl.com/inkygirl-main/2014/7/8/books-about-town-narnia-bookbench-and-giving-credit-to-pauli.html
