Thread: That mixed bittersweet feeling of rewriting your published novel

    I'd be VERY wary of a publisher that contacted me about a self-published book that had anything but stellar sales. Like, tens of thousands of copies. Are you absolutely confident this "hybrid" publisher isn't a scam and can get you the attention you want for your books?

    If they are legit, do they offer editing? It would probably make sense to talk to someone at their end and see what they think you should be doing with your book.

    I did some research on the publisher. They do editing and their books have better covers and more reviews than self-published ones. They also do reject books, like traditional publishers.

    Yep, gotta agree with Mod; move on to another book. And I gotta agree with Mod again that your posts do tend to be a bit braggadocios.

    Yeah, there is something odd about that offer.

    I didn't mean for my posts to sound brag like. I was just pointing out my experience. I apologize.

    Instead, what you're pointing out is your inexperience. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it is what it is.
