March Madness: What To Do When Your Publisher Scams You

Predatory Publisher Month at Indies UnlimitedWelcome to March. This month we’re doing something a little bit different – we’re having a theme month. Spearheaded by the lovely Lynne Cantwell, we’re going to feature articles from minions and guests alike about being scammed by publishers. We want those who have fallen victim to these publishing predators to know they’re not alone.

Since March is a huge sports month, we’ve tied that into the theme, with our great referee-type dude throwing the penalty flag at those bad eggs, and we’ve registered the hashtag #PublishingFoul.

Lynne will be kicking off the month (get it – another sports pun!) on Thursday and will give you all an idea of the great features she has in store for you. Meanwhile, if you have a story you’d like to share, please drop us a line through the contact form. We want to spread the word so that these types of things won’t happen to anyone else.

  1. I’m sure the participating minions and guests will knock it out of the park. Call a penalty on those deserving. Ummm … I’ll shut up now. 🙂

  2. I know of many authors who got “scammed.” Will be sure to read and share all of the posts on this series. I think that a lot of writers will be surprised at how easy it is to get sucked in…and how hard it is to pull yourself out.

  3. I hope no one is with iUniverse. I just went to see my sales and royalties and they are only posted through mid August, 2014. They are working on ones through the end of last year now, but they aren’t ready. The report for January thru March of 2015 won’t be posted until May. They also changed the page to see your reports and it isn’t easy to find. I was a newbie to writing when I went with them and should have done some research. I am so sorry now.

  4. I am sure there will be some good “horror” stories here. Thanks for bringing something so important out in the open.
