    KABooks / KAMedia Works Ltd. (formerly HandE Book Publishers, Ltd.)

    Hi. I'm a newbie. Has anyone had any dealings or any info on Hande Book Publishers? They are based in the UK. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    If it's this one: http://www.handepublishers.co.uk/, it's not a good sign that Coming Soon is for 2009 ....

    Thanks CaoPaux. They've indictated to me they were taking submissions and I wanted to get an idea of their track record.

    The front page of their website needs updating although they do have books up that were published as recently as this June.

    It looks like they're on the level at least, they're publishing TV tie-in books for Wizbit (and there's a show I haven't thought about in years), but the big test is to go into your local bookstore and see if any of their books are on the shelves.

    Shrouded, have they indicated whether or not they're paying an advance or what their other terms are?

    Thanks Momento Mori. I tried looking into their history but didn't get to far. There was no mention of an advance just that they distributed in the UK. I will heed your advice and see what I can find in Indigo and Chapters. t's the lack of info that had me wondering about them.

    Ye gods. I had a peek inside one book and it wasn't pretty...
