My quick 'n dirty tips:1 - Read the site carefully, keeping an eye out for shifty things (unclear descriptions, strange terms(2 - Check with a few of the authors (if you can find a way to contact them)3 - Check AW's Beware and Background Checks.AdamPS - Love ya!
What he said. ^^^I've been researching publishers again. I'm amazed at all the e-only pubs out there now that weren't there a year ago. Most of my friend's blogs are nicer than their websites. :/AW rocks! *shameless plug*
Agreed! Research is the key. And AW is the best resource in my opinion.
