    Good advice about the publisher happens to be owned by the big 5. I’d add take a look at who owns the publishing company in the ABOUT US section. Also, if they use the big buzz word salad by random jargon generator, run away.

      actually, that was just me snarking about how most of the Big 5 front for Author Solutions.

        But the snark is still a sharp observation. It’s very annoying that tradpub seems to sucker aspiring authours with dubious promises. A very good reason to self publish at least you succeed or fail on your own.

    If they can’t get their cut the old way (with a bad contract) trad-pub will shaft the indie writer by seeing how much Author Solutions can milk out of them … 😉
