Author Beware: Notorious AUTHOR SOLUTIONS increased future revenue by closing a deal with … You won’t believe it: Nook Press / Barnes & Noble! who offer now Print-on-Demand services through Author Solutions.
David Gauthran explains one of the most frightening points for authors, who sell their books through Barnes & Noble – even if they don’t use any of the POD services:
Read the whole story (peppered with documents for proof) at David’s blog, including responses of writers – and after please, do share it, re-blog it, and spread the word so that all authors get informed and be warned about this new scam. Many authors already pulled their books from B&N… as one can see on the many comments to blog articles regarding Author Solutions and Barnes & Noble.
“Dear Barnes & Noble:
Why on earth contracting with Author Solutions? And trick authors? Why not making money from selling books – instead of making money from selling (often useless) services at inflated prices to AUTHORS? And even giving personal data about authors – who commission their books on your online platform – to Author Solutions?”
A BIG thanks to David Gaughran, who works hard,
investigates and helps everyone in the writing community
to stay away from these unethical practices.
