    Parkside Press

    Has anyone heard of Parkside Press? I got a lead and I looked them up online and can't find anything. They've published the Galactic Aventures of Jaedyn Q. That's all I know. Any info is MUCH appreciated!!! Thank you all so much.

    Jemamme, what is the lead you have on them? Do you have a website for them?

    This looks like a self-publishing venture to me, based on the coverage of the book you're referring to (which looks interesting!) and the lack of any other internet presence for the publisher, which also doesn't appear in print references. (There is a commercial printer in Buffalo, New York named "Parkside Press" but there seems to be no connection.)

    Given that there's no website, no listings in any professional references, and no submission guidelines for this publisher, I can't imagine how you would even approach them if you wanted to.

    This is the link to where I discovered them. They are asking for novels. There is an email address but with no web presence what-so-ever and a dead-end web page, it doesn't look that good.

    http://www.parksidepress.com/

    This is their website. One page. No information.

    It's exciting to find someone looking for Novels but with no web presence they become more of a risk.

    Many publishers are looking for novels. The only ones not looking for novels are non-fiction-only presses.

    Aim for the biggest one you can find.

    Novels Wanted by Major Publishing Company
    Parkside Press has entered into a global distribution deal with a major US publisher...
    http://www.latinheat.com/2012/03/21/...shing-company/
    Yes, because major publishing companies you've never heard of - you know, the ones with virtually no internet presence - are so desperate for material to publish they have to advertise for it.

    As for their only book to date:

    The novel is available on Amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0615565182) and will be available to major book sellers everywhere through Ingram and Baker & Taylor on January 26, 2012.
    http://www.pr.com/press-release/384360
    Rebecca Mullen, who presumably sent out the press releases, can be contacted via the latter website.

    Good luck with that global distribution...

    No further activity, so I wager this was a one-shot wonder.
