Author Beware?!

Alright, as of late, I’ve been receiving a lot of requests to please vote for an author’s novel. Whereas I’m fully supportive in some cases, the requests become tedious and redundant yet others, there are high costs for entering.

In this blogger link, I encourage writers/authors to please read it carefully. There are many scams out there. Some of the scams include; higher than normal costs for entering, promises that there will be judges yet there are no names given, and ensuring that the money you give them will be given for some cost.

I’m thankful to the author of this blog for posting what she did and I really would love to know what everyone thinks.

    1. Any time! I was a little curious myself. It seems that every contest has a fee. And funny thing is, these people who are orchestrating it, are making out like bandits, and the author thinks they’ve legitimately won something. That’s not looking good for marketing the book.
