If a small publisher requires you to commit to buying copies of your own book--or any book--when you sign a contract, walk away. You shouldn't have to pay them to publish your books--they pay you.

They.
Pay.
You.

Buy books if you want to sell books. A high tide lifts all ships. This means buying debuts, buying midlist books, buying backlist. Don't just go for the bestsellers. Find the books that are being overlooked. BIG does not necessarily mean better. #pubtip
