Hey guys, earlier this year I wrote a book and for the last few months I've been trying to get published somehow. I've heard that self-publishing is the easiest/best way in today's world, but I feel like every company I've talked to is either a scam or trying to cheat me out of my work. I'm damn proud of my book and I would love to see it printed, but I don't want to lose it all or come out in the red to do so. I'm new to this forum, just joined like 15 minutes ago, and I'm just looking for some help. Does anyone have any tips, suggestions, or advice for an unknown author who is trying to get published and make a name for himself?
