WARNING to Self-Published authors! Be aware of random phishing phone calls and emails from people who are saying they want to market your books. They say they ‘ve seen your book and they think it is wonderful and they want to take your book and sell copies at big book fairs around the country or market it to movie producers or any number of other things. They talk you into paying them a lot of money and don’t do anything. If this happens to you and you think it might be legitimate be sure to do some due diligence! Ask them for references from other authors (and be sure to look online to see if those authors are for real), see if they have a website. Take their names and contact information. PROTECT YOURSELF!
Several of the authors I work with have been targeted by several of these con artists recently – if you want marketing done look around for people you can trust.
