Have you ever run across something that set your bullshit meter into high gear? Today I found a publishing company called Wild Blue Press that was established by an online marketing specialist and an award winning writer. Yep, I'd heard this before by a publisher I listed back in April, Severn River Publishing which was started by an online marketing specialist and a USA Today best selling writer. Just a coincidence? I tried to check out Severn River but I couldn't access the website. Mozilla said my connection was not secure.
Now, the names aren't the same but it seemed a little coincidental that two companies started a few months apart are both established by authors and marketing specialists. As I said, warning bells went off in my head and I thought I'd post my concerns. The companies could be totally legit and I'm just seeing things through jaded eyes. But please be careful out there when you're seeking a home for your work.
