Self-publishers need to be wary of scams that can steal their "rights"


Here is a quick video:  “Publishing Scams to Avoid”.  This video is intended for people who have self-published, either with their own print runs or with POD companies. 


Beware of the phone call that claims you have been “discovered” and of offers for services literary agents don’t do – and asking for money.

I get a lot of these calls. 

There are problems with people losing their “rights” too.  It’s a little hard to see how this can work if the author didn’t get any “consideration”.
  
On Youtube, the Author Incubator channel seems to have some anti-self-publishing videos, and I’ll look into what these say soon.
