What to Look For in a Small Publisher

Please come visit me over at Dale Cameron Lowry’s site where I’m discussing, well, just what the title of this post says. I’ve learned a lot about contracts and red flags, and while many small publishers are good (or at the very least mean well), you really need to know what you’re getting into. The first step, of course, is to clarify what YOU want for your book. Then find the publisher who can work with you to get there!

LOVE Dale’s infographic, btw. Very handy! And I’ve never had anyone make a graphic for me before, so I’m super flattered. Hope you’ll swing by the post for a look!
