I drop by from time-to-time, just to see if the industry has improved. Afraid once again it seems the environment is dangerous and a swamp for scams (no pay, copyright theft, mauling of submissions to ‘publishers’). I once thought things were pretty settled as to how book publishing works, but it is still the wild west. Makes you wonder how those big name guys actually succeed.
Thanx for the website and your continuing efforts to help so many.
