3.You will receive an author’s questionnaire in which you are asked to disclose up to 100 names of family members, friends, and associates. It states: “Also, please do not include businesses or organizations of any kind, including bookstores, media contacts, or government organizations. Include friends and associates only.” Why are they so shy of staying away fromrepparttar media if their wish is to actually SELL books? 4.Twice a year, March and September, marksrepparttar 146462 season for minuscule royalty checks. Think ofrepparttar 146463 time and effort you put in to writing your book. Add uprepparttar 146464 $30 copyright fee you paid,repparttar 146465 number of books you bought yourself,repparttar 146466 amount of money you forked over to get a web site and/or ANY type of online and offline promotional effort, and divide that intorepparttar 146467 amount you receive – usually less than $20! 5.Look atrepparttar 146468 numbers of authors and author’s advocates out there who write about what a scam PublishAmerica really is. Not just one or two disgruntled authors, but hundreds of them. Over onrepparttar 146469 Absolute Write Forum we have over 900 pages ofrepparttar 146470 NeverEnding Publish America thread. Mindsight and Writers Net have similarly vast amounts of web space devoted to warning and educating people aboutrepparttar 146471 drawbacks of being a Publish America author.

And finally, think aboutrepparttar 146472 time frame of that seven-year long contract which is what Publish America offers. In some states you could commit some pretty nasty felonies and get less prison time than that! Perhaps a more appropriate slogan would be: PublishAmerica, imprisoning authors one book at a time!

Standing mountains are likerepparttar breaks to what can be defined... if you call them less in a gritty jealousy, then what can be gained from your brash hand would be like a waste land compared to a forest that ridgesrepparttar 146081 sides ofrepparttar 146082 hills... The gain and future is what you sew into your flesh, what threads and spool from which you take will forever make crest upon your path. Letrepparttar 146083 patterns be that of peace and greatness and not that of malice, asrepparttar 146084 knots chock out any hope.

Praise the Lord for every day we do not lie sneer, or betray.
