Apologies if there's already a thread on this group; I checked the index but may have missed it.
I ran across NHP accidentally via a search for something else. At first, they looked like a standard small press:
But then I saw they have a self-publishing arm, which to me says Conflict of Interest in big red letters. But I wasn't really sure what services they provide:nHouse Publishing, LLC, thereafter NHP is an independent, English-language trade book publisher that specializes in general fiction, urban literature, erotica, young adult (YA), selective nonfiction such as memoirs, inspirational, history, and self-help, audio production—adaptation into a script (abridged format) or recorded as written (unabridged format), and Spanish translations. NHP was first established in May 2003, then reestablished in January 2010, by Terry W. Benjamin and Tobias A. Fox in New Jersey.
And then I saw this and really didn't get it:It is nHouse Publishing's goal to provide writers with the most comprehensive representation. We will work with the writer to develop their talent and receive full opportunity to become successful within the industry.
We work with the author in the following areas: Story Development, Production, Marketing/Promotion, and Distribution.
nHouse Publishing also offers a full consultation package. While maintaining the full rights of your literary works, this service allows the self-published author to be published under an established publishing house. This gives the author credibility and valuable resources within the publishing industry.
And I realised I'm really clueless about this ghostwriting stuff. So -- if you pay someone to ghostwrite a book for you, how does the credit work? Who gets the advance and royalties?GHOSTWRITING
$2,500 includes writer’s credit and percentage of advance and royalties
$6,000 if you want to obtain all credit
