I wonder if it would be possible to collect a list of so-called publishers that are scams. There are many firms that our clients have reported to us who pretend to consider a manuscript as if they were publishers, then they tell the author that the book deserves to be published but there is no room on their list, but if the author covers 'some' costs the alleged publisher will publish the work and promote it?
The costs are often double what a reputable agency would charge and there is no promotion at all.
If you have any examples can you email me: Cherry Mosteshar at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can look into them with a view to writing an article and publishing a 'warning list' for authors.
