I’ve been offered a “contribution-based” publishing contract.
They’re asking for £2,700 (I’m in the UK but its a worldwide company) contribution to publish one of my books.
The contract looks legit and it is my absolute dream to be able to publish my book “properly” if you know what I mean.
Question is - does anyone know if this is “okay”? I’m a bit hesitant because a) I dont have that kind of money just lying around, it’s a LOT of money to invest, b) I feel like I shouldn’t have to pay to be published and c) they aren’t going to edit them themselves/get an editor; I have to do this myself.
Now, with all that in mind, I have sent my manuscript to other “traditional” publishers, and I have time to think about what to do.
Obviously, I’m hesitant for reasons above, but it’s equally my dream come true.
Can anyone give me any insight?
