I sometimes wonder how some people can look at their face in the mirror and be comfortable with what they see. I just ran across a charity anthology that is supposed to be making money for a cancer fund raiser. Okay, but wait, there's a $25 non-refundable submission fee that goes not to the charity but to the publisher. And then there's the editing. The writer has to hire an editor or pay the submission editor to edit their work!?!
Maybe I'm a bit jaded but it seems like the only one making any profit on this project will be the editor and publisher, especially if they don't put any effort into promoting and selling the anthology. Money should flow to the writer or the charity not to the publisher and editor. Shame on you for using a cancer charity project in such a way.
