The thing about dreams is that they are precious to those they belong to. As writers we of course love to write, but we also want to make a living from our art. Feed our families. Find a loyal readership to share our words with. Some of us dream of making it big. J.K. Rowling big.
My goals are modest. I want to make a living and take care of my wife and kids. I am not unique in wanting that. It takes work of course, but then, we love writing, don’t we?
But beware. There are companies out there who have found ways to monetize our dreams. Most of you know David Gaughran. He is the author of Let’s Get Digital and Let’s Get Visible. He is also an investigative reporter who, it seems, has made it his life’s goal to expose Author Solutions for its unethical and, given the mounting evidence, dishonest practices. But there is much more to this story. So much more.
Please read David’s exposé on Authors Solutions, its awful practices, and the two class action suites against the company, as well as those companies who partnered with this beast. You will be surprised.
