    SenegalPress

    I didn't see anything on this publisher in the index and i was wondering if anyone had any information on it. There isn't a lot of information to their website and i wanted to make sure they weren't a scam.

    URL?


    Have you read any of their books?

    Remember, the purpose of a publisher is to make books public.

    Per their site:
    WHO ARE WE?
    SenegalPress is a young company who represents a unique way of publishing focused on literature written by young authors.

    WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
    There are a lot of young unknown writers who just need to be discovered. We encourage you to send your work in. No one is too young to be published by us. If we like it, you are in business.
    Looks like their niche is urban/gangland youth.

    Good freakin' grief.

    I thought I'd never say it, but their covers look worse than the ones on Publish America titles!

    That can't bode well for sales.

    "we will have your cover designed by a professional artist"

    Who is clearly not up to the task.

    I wouldn't be keen to get chummy with an operation that sells "products" rather than "books."

    Under "authors" is a half-arsed guidelines rather than bios. Considering they've only three books and two authors, that's understandable.

    Young company. Bad covers. Limited market.

    Probably not an *epic* fail in their future as they may not expand to that point, but it don't look good.

    Find someplace better!

    Go to a bookstore to find titles like yours; look inside the opening pages to get the name/website of the publishers.

    Site's gone. Doesn't look like it survived '09.
