Misleading Publishing Services

I found an interesting article on self publishing on the Publisher Standards Board site. It explains how some of the companies offering publishing services are misleading. Many of you know of the bad experience I had with Dog Ear Publishing. Make sure you spend time researching before you go with any self publishing company. My experiences with CreateSpace and KDP.Amazon have so far been without problems.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts...I was planning on using Create Space, but have noticed other platforms. I will probably stick to what I know most about...CS.

All I need is something weird that doesn't work for me!

Yes, warn away. There are some awful publishing companies out there.

I researched Dog Ear when I was looking to self-publish, but I was turned off by the name. LOL. I went with Outskirts Press but can't say I was really thrilled with them either.

One thing that made me shy away from Outskirts was their contract where they used the words "as is." This basically means that there is no recourse for errors they make.
