    Bravado Publishing (formerly Bravado Writing and Publishing Services)

    Has anyone heard of this company? http://www.bravadopublishing.com/index.html

    It was listed on the WD list of 2009 Self-publishing companies.

    I ask because I'm interested in finding a local NW company to invite as a presenter for our writers' workshop, but only if they are not scammers/just a vanity press.

    I couldn't find it listed on the existing list of publishers.

    Just glancing at their website, I like that they seem straightforward about self-publishing. They look to be upfront about fees and don't hit you with a lot of scare tactics and "publishing is broken" hyperbole which is refreshing.

    If the ISBN lists Bravado as the publisher, it's vanity.

    IMHO, they look like a 'large fee in advance' self-pub. I, personally, don't consider any of them to be highly reputable by contrast with back end cost recovery publishers like Lulu, Createspace etc.

    Is back to Bravado Publishing, and has dropped all mention of other services.

    And in '14 became Bravado Publishing Services to offer editing/formatting with no actual publishing. (Owner publishing her how-to books as Authorpreneur Press.)
