About This Episode
If you only listen to one of our podcasts this year, let it be this one…
As an indie press-seeking or self-published author, the dream is to get your hard-won book out into the hands of the public. Some will jump when offered the chance because it sounds too good to be true. In this episode, Kathleen and Penny Sansevieri go in-depth into the darker side of the publishing world. A caution for the hopeful to do their due diligence before handing money to a supposed publishing company or marketing firm.
Penny is a marketing expert who recently has run into scammers using her company’s name to fleece folks out of thousands of dollars. It’s a heartbreaking side of the industry. We at Talking Book Publishing wanted to cover this topic. We feel the responsibility to our audience to inform on all sides of this industry. So you can make informed decisions when it comes time to take the preverbal leap of faith with your book. Remember, not all companies are bad, and there are some great tips in this episode to help you on your book journey.
Penny will also be a speaker at this year’s 805 Writers Conference and will be doing a session, a workshop, and mini group talks with a handful of people. For more information, you can visit 805WritersConference.com.
