Hybrid Publishing Advice from Jane Friedman

From her post:

  • Some services have started calling themselves “hybrid publishers” because it sounds more fashionable and savvy, yet offer low-quality results and service. 
  • Most marketing and publicity service packages, while well-meaning, are not worth your investment. 
  • Avoid companies that take advantage of author inexperience and use high-pressure sales tactics, such as AuthorSolutions imprints (AuthorHouse, iUniverse, WestBow, Archway, and others). 
  • To check the reputation of a service, search for Mick Rooney’s Independent Publishing Magazine website.
