I know some of you who read this blog are either indie authors or intending to be. David Gaughran posted a warning on his site earlier this morning that I think bears repeating.

Here’s the link to David’s post. If you are an independent author or plan to be one, check it out. He summarizes why this is a scam and provides pertinent links for those who want more detail.
I”ll have more to say about this later.
