    [Publisher] Good Books

    Hello. Does anyone know anything about Good Books? They have a nice website but no information about submissions. They're not listed with Preditors and Editors (at least I didn't find them) and I didn't turn anything up with a Google search. They seem reputable, but I thought I would check here since so many of you are so knowledgeable.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    We carry several of their "Fix It and Forget It" cookbooks in the bookstore I work at (national chain).
    Why doesn't George R. R. Martin use Twitter? He already killed off all 140 characters.

    Sorry about leaving out the website- thanks BrianM for posting it.

    That's who I was talking about. I recognized the fix-it and forget-it cookbooks. I know I've seen them in stores.

    I had never heard of this publisher but was browsing the children's section of Barnes and Nobles yesterday and saw a couple books published by them. They have a long list of picture books, which is what I'm interested in.

    If you can't find any information, just give them a call and ask if they accept unagented submissions and if so, who should you address the submission to.
