    No Boundaries Publishing

    Good Evening AW'ers!!

    I was sent this email about this new electronic publishing company named No Boundaries publishing. I never heard of them before and wonder if anyone has any news on them. I think they may be new.

    WhoIs says the webpage was first created/registered in March 2011, and they haven't released any books yet, so I'd say yes, they're new.

    E-publisher, offers a 1 year contract (which sounds short to me -- doesn't it usually take 6 - 12 months for a contracted book to be edited, get cover art, and be released?). Offers 50% royalties though not stated if this is on net or cover. Accepts all genres, which does not bode well for a press's success.

    One erotica book listed as forthcoming, by an author whose name when googled comes up with zero hits. I would not be surprised to learn that this author (Jaydee Catz) is Judy Sipics, who owns the press; Judy Sipics is also Jude Stephens, an erotica writer.

    Considering the plethora of established e-presses out there, I'd suggest that anyone seeking commercial publication send their work to known entities such as Samhain, and wait to see where No Boundaries is at in a year.

    No named owner, no books yet, and a free 'weebly' website. A bit underwhelming really.

    Edited to add: Unimportant beat me to it; ditto.

    I just signed a contract with them today for upcoming pub of my "long short story" Absolution. Thought I'd give the new kid on the block the chance to see how it goes!

    I just had my YA novel 'Demi-World' published with them. I don't know how sales will be--I can only hope they're good and that everything was formatted to my specifications, but Judy was very easy to deal with and the editor, Patricia Bates, offered considerable help and solid advice.

    Wow I think I have been watching too much Dr Who... someone is messing with my computer's time scale...

    For a moment there I thought I might have been looking at the join date, but I looked and no, I wasnt... and it has all gone back to normal now.

    I think I need my eyes checked hahaha

    First of all, I was just teasing. Also, I think you're probably right that your eyeballs landed on the join date rather than the post date: the second post in the thread was from someone who joined in 2005. Though I also like the Dr Who explanation. (/offtopic )

    Sigh... more authors left in limbo most likely. Kellie and J.S.F, did they ever publish your work? Just curious where this leaves both of you.

    I'm getting a 404 Page Not Found/Site Not Published error when I click on the submissions and home page links. If they're not operating, your email should be bouncing back some time soon.
    I still poop rainbows.




    I won't steal any of your ideas. I have enough of my own I'm not using.
