An Author’s Best Friend – Due Diligence

Thank you for finding Indies Unlimited.

Here at IU, we do our best to provide helpful information to indie authors of all levels. Our goal is to provide the knowledge they need to make intelligent decisions about writing and publishing. We are not, however, a watchdog site, nor do we try to be. There are other sites out there, such as Writer Beware and Preditors and Editors, which dedicate their resources to identifying scammers.

Despite all the efforts to make authors aware of predators looking to make money off of them, the best tool is actually knowing how to spot a scam. That knowledge will enable authors, no matter how often the scammer changes its name, to avoid being taken advantage of.

Scams can include events, services, marketing, awards, and so much more. That’s why it is important for every author to do their due diligence and check these things out thoroughly before committing any financial expenditures. Hopefully the article above will help.

Thank you again for finding Indies Unlimited.
