Be on your guard
Recently, I happened to come across a group on Facebook for aspiring writers and authors. What caught my attention were some of the comments and book covers that were posted. For one, the short synopsis editing, was terrible as were the book covers. Many of the authors, from their comments, were upset with the finished project. One must be mindful of people who claim to know the business but are out to line their pockets with your hard-earned money.
The satisfaction of completing your manuscript is a feeling unlike any other, yet at the same time, it’s about doing your homework. Research any and everything about the person(s), you’re going to give your money.
There are people with bad intentions who are waiting in the wings to take advantage of you because of your lack of experience. Be careful of some of the authors, editors, and publishers you crossed paths with. Continue writing, and surround yourself with people who want to grow and build with you; rather than those who want to take your money.
