I'd like to pick up this thread if possible. A simple google search isn't offering me author opinions about the publisher.
A friend of mine is writing a fascinating book about the Civil War - she has already contacted Stackpole who wants to publish it, but she is cleaning it up for them, per their request.
I've asked her if she's been here and she has not, so I thought I'd try to get any feedback from you regarding their "deal."
Simple questions: does anybody know how they are with their authors? Fair? Do they assist the author with marketing? Are they reliable? Will she be swindled? etc....
