    Thumbs down Taylor-Dth Publishing

    More honest than most “fee-based" publishers, but still aims to mislead.

    They can't even spell Stephen King's name right and them saying he sold books out of his trunk was what really put me off. Not to mention, "Not enough room here. Call us."
    The inner machinations of my mind are an enigma.

    Oh, lord, they've conflated the Stephen King and John Grisham myths.

    See Autobibliophilia for self-publishing myth debunking.

    ETA: Oh, good grief:
    Many publishers exercise some sort of censorship on their published material. At Taylor-Dth Publishing we do not believe in censorship. We will accept any subject matter for publishing, whether controversial or unique in some other aspect. However, we will not accept pornography, hate related material, or works libelous in nature.
    IOW, "We accept anything, except the stuff we don't accept."

    What are 'rights'?
    Again, there are many issues involved here and a thorough reading of the contract is important, especially the small print! One item is sales; who can sell what where. Are you giving the publisher an exclusive or non exclusive right to sell your books? You want to keep your options open, so non exclusive is the way to go. Please call us for more information.
    Well--glad they cleared that up for us!

    Good grief.

    Nothing updated, but put out more books in '11 & '12, all but one by the same author.

    ETA: No further activity.
