Thanks for all the responses about IFWG Publishing. However, none of what you all had to say put me off from signing a contract with them, and to date I am not sorry I went ahead and did so. From the get go, Randy Knowlton and Gerry Huntman have been nothing less than upfront and professional. They might be a small press (for now) but I respect a publisher who avoids trying to be everything to everyone. Even the largest conglomerates have certain topic areas they don’t experiment in. Which is a good thing, considering the importance of building and maintaining a strong reputation in the minds of authors and prospective readers alike. Their editing process and cover design is exemplary, not to mention their pre-release advertising—everything an author needs to get ahead. My opinion: I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them.
