    [Publisher] Bobolink Media Inc.

    Does anyone know anything about Bobolink Media? I just visited my local B&N and searched through the local picture book section. I found a few titles with Bobolink listed as the publisher.

    (link removed due to threat of virus.)

    I didn't register for their site, so maybe more information is provided to members, but I can't tell if it's a traditional publisher or a self-publishing company. There's very little information and no submission guidelines. They have a list of authors, which almost seem "in-house"...?

    What am I missing? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Hmm.. that's strange. Nothing comes up on mine when I visit their site. I know at least the company is fairly reputable as they have books available at Bookmans and B&N, I just can't determine if it's traditional or self publishing, and no indication is given.

    thinks you're pretty.

    No need to delete the thread, just re-edit your post to remove the offending link. It's nothing you did.

    Yep, me too (Avast). JS:Iframe-BQ [trj]

    Site hasn't been updated in a while. Latest book was published earlier this year, but is not on Amazon. The books that are listed at Amazon, etc. have The RGU Group as publisher, which is likely the printer and not uncommon in POD situations.

    Niche small press aimed at school libraries, I'm guessing.

    So.. likely POD? Even though they had a few books in major bookstores here?

    POD doesn't preclude bookstore presence if they offer the discounts and returns stores expect. That said, in reading up more on The RGU Group, they look to be a specialty packager, so it's likely not POD after all.

    Bobolink Media is a small traditional press that bought out RGU's book division a couple of years ago. I have had books published with them, and I'm very satisfied with the way they have promoted my books.

    Updating link: http://www.bobolinkmedia.com/index.php

    Was either bought by Sunbelt Publications (http://www.sunbeltbook.com/), or made a distribution deal with them. In any case, Amazon now lists the books as pubbed by Sunbelt (they're listed as Bobolink on Sunbelt's site).
