Writer Scams

Unfortunately in this writing business, as in most industries, there is always someone trying to scam unaware, stars-in-their-eyes writers. You must do your homework before you sign up with a publisher, ezine, or content site. 

A site that keeps track of publishers who are good and bad according to info they receive is Preditors and Editors. Just click on the beginning letter of the publisher’s name.  Scroll through the list for the pub to see if they are included as recommended or one to avoid.

A “watchdog” blog is Writer Beware. It ” shines a bright light into the dark corners of the shadow-world of literary scams, schemes, and pitfalls. We also provide industry news, advice for writers, and a special focus on the weird and wacky things that happen at the fringes of the publishing world.”

Be careful! Writer scams are everywhere.  Be aware!
