    DeWard Publishing Company

    Looks like it has been around for a few years. Publisher of religious-themed books (nonfiction and fiction).

    Here is a sample contract:

    They're a known, if smaller, press in the Christian fic market. They put out two of Sandi Rog's historical romances, IIRC. I read the first of those, and the production values were good.
    Three-part time travel romance. Part One, SEASONS IN THE MIST
    Part Two, SEASONS OF RECKONING, now available
    Part Three, SEASONS OF HOPE, coming soon, all from Desert Breeze

    An inspiration... ...I have a serious case of Grobanosis

    The 10% royalty based on wholesale price seems a bit low, even if it bumps up to 12.5% after the first 10,000 copies sold. Add that to authors purchasing own copies at only 40% discount plus shipping, and royalties paid out only once a year...

    Not the best, but could possibly be negotiated.

    I see her titles won both the Christian Small Publisher book of the year for both 2011 and 2012. I subbed. Perhaps the contract can be negotiated. We'll see how it goes!

    What? They couldn't have read anything in that short of a time. I always wonder about these insta-Rs.

    I didn't send them any pages. No interest in interracial romance set in the 1960s South. Figures... Their two fiction titles are Biblical so I should have known better.
