A&RBC: What advice (relative to your area of business) can you give to aspiring authors?
FourShadough: The single most important advice for an aspiring author is do your research. Many authors have a misconception of what happens when they write a book and are literally accosted by predatory publishing companies that take advantage of their dreams. Aspiring authors should exercise a lot of restraint first of all then they should put the their story up and research the publishing industry from the business side so they will understand the verbiage and how the industry functions. They should reach out to other authors and ask questions and make conscious decisions. Finally, they should never, under any circumstances, ever sign a contract without having a lawyer look over it first.
