According to the website:

A-Better Be Write does not require nor do we accept financial participation by the Author


I'm not sure what you mean by the company changing hands, as Mr Connor is still listed as the Managing Editor. This would put me off, as would the fact the ABBW accepts virtually every genre. The books themselves are so expensive ($18.95 for a 42-page children's paperback book entitled Why Cody Can't Learn) they have to be POD. And the covers...dear God, the covers! Factor in blurbs like this for Charlie Ford Meets Secret Agent Man...

What's the worst that could happen? Charlie gets a job, working for Hollywood's top action hero, caring for his blatantly pretentious twelve year old daughter, Annabelle. A summer to be spent in Africa with dirt, a spoiled brat and bugs the size of her fist. Who knew that airplanes do get high-jacked and that Charlie tends to scream like a girl and pass out -- A lot! Come along for a wild adventure in which Charlie meets Secret Agent man. There's wildlife, bad dudes with guns and a hunky super spy to add to the excitement. It's unlike any summer vacation you've ever had.



...and you get the impression that the company probably shouldn't be at the top of anyone's list.
