New scam on the way: Lookout book authors. Got a call from a guy saying my book was highly recommended by Literary Book Scout. No such organization but there are a bunch of freelance book scouts out there trying to drum up money by contacting authors most likely from Amazon to try and get the authors to pay them $450. to market their books. Did some more research and found the person called from Readers Magnet, http://www.readersmagnet.com/ PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH ANY AND ALL AUTHORS YOU KNOW AND CARE ABOUT--being a book author is no easy task and marketing your book once published, mostly self-published these days--is near impossible so these kinds of scammers prey on authors who usually have huge egos and desperately want their words read. In fact, please share this with anyone and everyone you know, since they just might know an author who needs to be made aware of this scam. One clue: all people I spoke with had a heavy foreign accent. Another clue they don't know English well as shown in their statement: "readersmagnet.com/world-wide-publicity/the-4ms-for-your-book/ … There are many things to remember in able for you to sell your book online." In able for you to sell your book online? In able? lol
