bookbaby sweepstakes question

Postby max2011 » Fri Sep 28, 2012 10:42 am

I recently received an invitation from bookbaby to enter their sweepstakes for a chance to win a publishing package. This is the first time I receive something like this and wanted some input as to how I should proceed.

After just a quick look at their website - where they charge "as little as $99" to do what you can do yourself for free - I'd steer clear of them altogether. JMO

It's really not that hard. Just tell me a story.

Looks like a vanity publisher. They send out sweepstakes emails hoping a good percentage of those who have clicked the link will sign up and become paying customers. Yeah. I'd steer clear as well!

it's just a vanity publisher's come-on...
