    They don't inspire any confidence. Can't tell who's running them, nor what their experience is, nor what edge they think they have over other successful epublishers. I'd pass and look for someone with a track record. These guys don't sound like they know what they're talking about.

    Caopaux,

    Are you referring to this quote from his web site?

    "A small clause is being added, asking that 10% of later book sales or Hollywood or television rights income is passed to Fledgling Press for writing first published here."

    Now, is he saying he expects 10% of something if you re-publish your book with another publisher or is he saying he expects 10% of anything else you write because he was your first publisher?

    Wow.

    I'm a writer. No, really. I type and everything.

    Tolkien wrote Lord of the Rings. I've no idea who that Tolkein guy is.

    The question however always is whether the publisher helped, or if they were all done himself.
