    Sid Harta Publishers

    Hello everyone,

    I know, or rather I assume, that Sid Harta has been discussed. Forgive me my inability to locate the files concerning this publisher.

    I was wondering if anyone had any experiance with this group. It seems to be a vanity press, with a geniune desire to print quality... you know what I mean? The process of editing seems to be forefront in their webpage. Only I haven't found anything to suggest that they do anything more than what PA provides.

    How are they viewed as far as the publishing world... if anyone knows.

    Thanks in advance.

    Far from the madding crowd
    There's an existing Sid Harta thread, where I assume a moderator will soon port this one...

    Sid Harta offers vanity contracts (the author has to pay to be published--Sid Harta calls this "co-publishing"). The submission guidelines also appear to require authors to pay for a manuscript assessment (not something you'd expect from a reputable commercial publisher).
