Get this gripping mystery now! Frank Baum. The Mary Louise Series is a collection of four novels concerned with adolescent girl detectives written under the pseudonym Edith Van Dyne. She is a fifteen-year-old girl with unusual maturity though the other girls in her boarding school find her somewhat priggish.

Frank Baum was an American author chiefly known for his children's books. Let's Catch: Snowdon! Their submission page seems to indicate that authors pay no fees if the book is selected for publication, which is a good sign. That said, it all depends what their publishing process is like do they involve professional editors to review your book, pay a cover designer, etc. I just want to put it out there. Avoid Prodigy Gold books at any cost. They are a company who is questionable in its ethics. Two books were supposed to be published. I signed a contract, still no work has been done and I cannot republish as he owns the rights.
What is one to do? How much would that cost! His sidekick Laura Freestone is just as bad. Vety unprofessional to say the least. Leanne, it's unfortunate that you had a bad experience with our company. You have been informed by our publisher that you were free to publish your book when we initially decided to rescind our offer. To be clear, your book was assigned an ISBN, had a book cover designed, was available for pre-order, social media promotion, and developmental editing which you didn't like, which caused the problem ; hence, it is false to question our ethics, and to claim we did no work.
So what am I to receive for my USD. I have not received anything and that is unacceptable. For your information , I have never seen the partially completed book or received a refund. You assured me of a refund. A sidekick is nothing disrespectful and no one has a problem with me ,here. You had 12 months to decide to publish my work but came at the 11th hour requesting that I rewrite my entire book. You should have rejected if straight away. Do you pay a little more sometimes for the convenience of your file preparation being consolidated to one place?
Of course! It may sound great that they'll do "everything for you", but in reality what that means is that you lose editorial control over your book: they decide who'll do the editing, they'll do the cover, and they decide all the metadata when distributing the book. This is very helpful, though I don't understand all of it.
I've looked everywhere but can't find one with the proper experience. I'm not a against a secular publisher but my series is a Christian one. Thank you very much for the article. Do you have any updated information about TBN and their Trilogy publishing arm? I do not know where to go with this since it seems there are so many scams. Please advise. Does anyone have any insight on 13th and Joan? I haven't heard of them but they seem like an outright scam. It's free to publish and sell on Amazon both for the ebook and the print book — you should never pay a third-party company for that.
This information really helped me. Also what about Xlibris?
Newman springs and Dorrance have both accepted my manuscript. I used x-libris cost me a few thousand and didnt sell much. One was Gold Touch press and recently Lettra press. Does anyone know anything about Capstone Media Services? We were never given an advance and were told it may take 2 or 3 years to get a return on our money.
We've heard a lot of very bad things about Capstone Media Services. They seem to be a copycat of Author Solutions the most famous scam company in the publishing industry based out of the Philippines.

No, but after a brief look at their website they seem like one of the numerous Author Solutions copycats that have sprouted in the Philippines in recent years. The copy on the website is riddled with typos and uses the same language as most vanity press scams: "Gold Touch Press provides premium publishing services at a good value.
We remove all the hassles that delay the project and direct your manuscript at the hand of highly experienced team. Ok thank you. I am definitely thinking the same. Know any good inexpensive and real self-publishing websites that also help with marketing for me to republish with? So what is Author Academy? My book has been chosen as a finalist for book of the year. But so have a lot others.
Is this a real site or exactly what? There is a comment below about Author Academy, which I'd encourage you to read. Starting an "award" is a common marketing tactic to attract authors. There isn't a lot of info available on their website as to pricing, so I can't give a definite opinion. Do keep in mind that if you have to pay to receive the award, or enter the final round, or anything like that, your money is probably best invested somewhere else. I didn't agreed to anything and had several red flags in our phone conversations. This seems like an outright scam. There are new companies offering these kind of "marketing packages" popping up every day.
Don't fall for it. I had received an email and phone call about my book which was priced too high by the publisher and is not selling! The persons name is Derrick McIlroy.. Any thoughts would help. I believe this may be a scam artist. Thanks- sandiw gmail. I can't find anything about them either, which is generally a bad sign a reputable publisher, even small, would have a website. I just realized that I had been taken by cindyhill bookthoughtspublishing.
Vector Marketing Scam | Cutco Knives Review - My Opinion! - Knife Up
She even provided a contract and provided for a payment plan in which she took my money. She promised to keep me apprised of the markeing status and provide proof of my book listing in these events, but then she never followed up. I found out later that my book was never presented at the events as she claimed, and I had been taken for a fool.
They contacted me via email. I think I got duped by a vanity press. To be fair, they pulled one on my agent too. We since pulled the book because our single contact who seems to be the only person there was starting to comb my voice out and replace it with hers. She is demanding payment for her time, though she was the one dragging her feet. They have contacted me to republish a novel we had previously published with Tate. Tate went belly up. I am an experienced author with another good publishing company but they are not interested in this genre.
See a Problem?
I would like to know as well. They approached me about my book I published with Tate. I just saw a list of scammers and they were on it. Hi there and thankyou for the advice. I am a debut novelist trying to get my head around all this. Someone contacted my sisters and me about his appreciation for s science fiction, and wanted to know if we would let him be the literary agent for my father's novels.
The books have already been published and are now out of print. They weren't best sellers, definitely dated so they may be "period pieces. What do you think? Is the company covenant house a reputable publishing company. This is my first time working towards publishing a children's book. Convenant publishing company is an hybrid company. You have to sign a contract with them and you will have to pay whatever the contract ask for if you sign. I didn't sign the contract. I feel if your book get accepted by a publisher, the company should pay you or get paid by royalties.
They became very dodgy and manipulative inferring I was ignorant about how independent presses work. FYI- I self published two books. I baled. Would not recommend. Hi, do you have any experience with Advantage Books?
