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.
