    Yep, definitely a vanity press. I don't find their website that inspiring either, but they seem to have published a lot of books. I don't know if their rates are that high compared to other vanity presses, and they're up front about it. You can buy all packages seperately, so you'll probably have an idea of what you're getting into. But still, it's a vanity press and you'll have to pay if you want to see your book on the shelves. And even if you pay, chances you'll actually see it on a shelf are slim.

    Submission Editors

    Borderline Publishing has a unique and proprietary approach to marketing for authors that choose international distribution.

    At Borderline we have a team of submission editors. Each author has one assigned to them and works to assist with online marketing. The wave of book marketing. Think of it as your personal marketing project manager. They will show you the way, teach you the ins and outs, the what-to-dos, and the faux pas that could get the author (and the book) some unexpected, unwanted negative feedback. Readers want to hear from the author. Make sure you are saying and doing the correct things.

    Book marketing is revolutionary in this day and age. It changes quickly and the author must stay up with the change. Not only will the submission editor become the biggest advocate for you and your book(s), they will keep you up to date on the ever-changing market. Do you have time to do the research necessary to stay on top, as well as market your book?

    We have only touched on the idea here. With the proprietary information, we cannot tell you all the amazing things that are doing on with this program. We can assure you, it is a tested and true program. It takes what the traditional publishing houses are requiring, and brings it to you.

    Let us lead you! The best news, this special program only available with Borderline Publishing, does not cut into author profits! You will have to contact us to find out how it works.

    Oooh...a super-secret special program! I wonder if they've hit on the method, long sought by vanity presses, to make potential customers buy books they don't want to read?

    They even have a coliseum. For the combat, I presume?

    Signing with Resilient Publishing requires a $299 commitment fee.
    Yep, looks like it hasn't changed much.
