Everyone who submits gets published IF they order a book.
Welcome to the WEB, Cheryl. We're glad you've joined us. Please tell us a bit about yourself. We'd love to get to know you.
One of my kids was almost 'taken' by this organization, but since he had to pay for the book himself, he didn't buy it and has since realized it was a scam. He warned his brothers away from that 'contest'.
Again, welcome. Please make yourself at home.
Did you read the fine print, Amanda?
I believe those invitations don't include travel expenses or accommodations.
When you're included in an anthology, you get free copies of the book; you don't have to pay for them. Basically, you're paying for inclusion.
Writers are paid to work; they shouldn't pay.
Publication by them is also something to leave off your credits if you expect a legitimate publication to consider you a professional.
That's the point, Mary!
I didn't bother already had other comitments that weekend.
