Markus, thank you for visiting our blog and commenting on these posts. We try to be totally open and truthful with our authors. At WME we work hard to help our authors succeed, so outlining the costs just seems like a good idea. Good luck with your search. Be sure to visit Booklocker and iUniverse. They could be useful to you. If you have any other questions, feel free to email me: [email protected]

I have just recently completed a manuscript and am in the process of trying to locate a publisher. This is my first attempt at writing so, I know nothing about it or the publishing side of things. But is did want to make two comments:

First, words cannot describe how valuable these articles are. I now have some idea of what happens on the publishing side of writing a book. These are things that the average new author does not think of. Thank you.

And, secondly, I have been searching some of the writers forums on-line and see that some writers that have had their work turned down have been cruel in their remarks about a publisher. One of the issues was concerning a four thousand dollar committment on the part of the author. After reading what was written by Dave Young, I feel that this should be posted on every forum when would-be authors complain about pricing.

Markus,
