• Well, there’s a fairly large difference between the Xliblis type companies of the world and a true independent publisher. If they take your money to publish your work, they probably don’t have your best interests in mind. A publisher who puts their own money on the line WANTS your book to do well because otherwise they don’t make any money. 😉

    That said, I’m not saying there’s ANYTHING wrong with paying to have someone print your work for you, especially if you’re motivated to get out there and promote the work yourself!

    Good luck with your new book! I hope you DO sell a million copies! 🙂

    • Hi, thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment. I do have a lot to learn, but that’s ok. I am just wanting to find a company that is upfront with everything so you can see exactly what is happening with your book.

      I did go to your blog and I’m now following you. I to am trying to lose 100# and it is not easy. I have been fighting weight all my life. I wish you good forturne and the slim trim self you want.

  • Well a publisher like everyone else has to pay the bills. They are not doing it out of the kindness of their heart. A good thing to do is get whatever it is you expect them to help you with. You need to know line by line what you expect and they expect. The publisher’s job is not to help you improve you writing. That is what classes, workshops, writing groups are for. The publisher is looking for something that is ready to go to print.

    • I can understand a publisher making money but not leading a newbie astray by making promises they don’t keep. If someone tells me they are going to do a job then that is what I expect.
