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.
