I'm very new to this business but sent my first three chaps off to Quick Brown Fox Publishing after reading about them in Writers' News. I got a 'standard' e-mail back but he's asking for a £20 reading fee 'to sort the serious ones from the others' ...
I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOO disappointed now - thought it might be a good place, since they were interested in new authors. I suppose that a lot of new authors would fall for this? Am I right NOT to fall for this? Help, please. Is it EVER OK to ask for a reading fee?
Thank you very much,
