    Their website is enough to make me drink benzine. Business websites shouldn't have flash and pages that build themselves in front of our eyes. They don't appear to realize bookstores, agents, and reviewers view our websites, and there is no way they're going to sit through all this gee-wizardry.

    Publisher's sites are supposed to highlight their product; yet their books are nicely hidden. No price, no ISBN, no order button - you have to click on the Little Flower Shop link, which still lists no ISBN, or the author's name! They aren't listed in Ingram iPage, Amazon.com, or B&N.com. Utterly clueless.

    But this should be the most telling of all (on their About Us page): "Tired of the money-buzz that drives American publishing, a restless writer and a bored businessman on a quest for passion, stumbled into independent publishing."

    One does not stumble into publishing. It has to be a well thought out, calculated plan. Despite what these good folk may think, it's that money buzz that keeps us afloat. They appear to have zero marketing ability, so it begs the question as to why anyone would be interested in this company.

    Thank you. Your short post gave me some insights into evaluating a small pubisher's web site.
