What Was I Thinking?

(Long Island, NY)

Before I found this site I self published my book with, well, I probably shouldn't say...but I will say that is one that advertises a lot and they are a vanity publisher. (Please don't do it if you're thinking about it!)

I paid for all kinds of services, including editing. To my horror, I received my copy and there was no editing done at all! And they basically told me too bad! Well, I couldn't have that so I cancled my account, lost all my money, and still didn't have my work out there!

Because of a recommendation from Maria, who writes this site, I have now contacted Angela at Booklocker and they have approved my manuscript and given me all kinds of help, including finding my own editor.

I just started working with her and am so happy! I will be publishing with Booklocker after my editing is finished.

I love this site! So much great information to help with all aspects of writing careers! I just wish I had found you before I made that huge, costly, mistake!

Thank you!

First, I'd like to say how sorry I am to hear about your experience with self publishing. It is difficult to navigate all the hype.

I am really glad you found my site and that it has helped you. I know Angela and the Booklocker gang will take great care of you.

I hope you will let me know when your book is ready so we can list it on this site for sale.

All my best,
