Flim-Flam Alert

Okay, folks, this is just an FYI - in case you don't already follow Writer Beware (which you should be following... go and follow it now):

Scam Alert

If you're out there thinking you need to copyright your material before you start querying it...DON'T!

And in this day of limitless information, why would you even think you need to?  Research everything about this business before you take your first steps into it - and for godsakes, certainly before you pay some shyster money to 'help' you. 

If you're here, though, you're probably already smart enough to not get caught in this scheme, so pass it along to unwary friends.
