Hi can anyone here tell me of a good honest publisher I can sell my book through
I wrote a book by the name of 'Stepping Stones" by : Abigail J. Chandler I published it via "feedaread.com" September 2013 and I paid $160 USD for marketing on Amazon , Google, Barnes and Nobles etc its almost one year I paid for marketing and twice feedaread paid out and I got NO MONEY. They told me I got no sales and give me a list of ways to Market my book. I cannot understand what was the purpose of me paying that money to market my book for . Honestly I am starting to think differently of them as though I was ripped OFF. Because my book is viral on the net!! & I am not making
I've had a problem like this for years and tried with a couple of publishers. I had to pay between $2,000-$6,000 for the two agencies. Best way is to gather the books you have or enjoy reading, see where they were published and submit your book. You may need or look into an agent to help you get published. Self publishing is very hard because it's hard to tell if they believe in your book at all or if they are keeping profits away from you. Good luck!
I agree with you Risa i believe they sell your books and kept the profits for themselves because i write lovely poems. I cannot understand how none was sold, they took my money and then still want me to self market it.
The thing to remember about self publishing (paying someone to publish it or publishing it for free) is that marketing is entirely on your shoulders. Companies that offer self publishing just make the book available, they do not promote your book in any capacity. That is the responsibility of the author and always has been.
Having said that, there are agents and publishers out there who do take advantage of aspiring authors, charging countless fees to make their own income while doing nothing for you. If this publisher is asking for more money, then I would advise taking your book elsewhere. If it was a one time fee to list the book, then it sounds like a normal self publisher.
The kind of system you're looking for is the traditional market, where a publisher puts in an effort to market your book. To get into that you'll have to find an agent. Personally I recommend the 2014-15 Guide to Literary Agents. It gives you all the info you need along with a list of agents who are looking.
