    Indical Promotions

    This one didn't seem to be in any of the threads. Therefore I am adding it.

    Indical Promotions

    There doesn't seem to be an about us page, though the site is designed by Ashley Howie whom runs Ink Smith Publishing.

    What do you ladies think?

    Indical's website is singularly lacking in useful information. The following statement doesn't inspire much confidence in the company's editorial skills:

    If you have tried self publications, you have found the industry is very unforgiving of mistakes, and those not acquainted with the trivialities of varying etiquette.
    http://indicalpromotions.com/
    Self-pubbed author Charles Bryant is the owner and founder of Indical:
    https://www.facebook.com/charles.bryant.7359

    Says Mr Bryant:
    Where does true inspiration come from? Ancient Greeks found the word to convey self breathed existance. Native Americans called the spiritual place from which inspiration comes Indical. Indicalpromotions.com is the wi-fi spiritual connection for creative thinkers. We know the five steps involved in bringing your illusion into vision. #1. CONTACT- HOW YOU SEE THAT CREATION BEFORE IT IS FORMED... #2. COMMUNICATION- YOUR RESPECTIVE VIEW ON HOW OTHERS WILL ACCEPT YOUR CREATION. #3. DEBATE- EVERY ISSUE OF LIFE BEGINS WITH THE HEART. INNER STRUGGLE OF THE AUTHOR IS AN ONGOING BATTLE WE ARE ARMED TO HELP YOU TO OVERCOME. #4. CHOICE- WE ARE NEITHER DEAD, NOR RIGHTEOUS. WE CHOOSE BY EXPERIENCE. OPEN UP TO THE PROVEN EXPERIENCE OF OTHERS IN YOUR MARKETSPECTRUM. BUILD AN EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE PLAN THAT FITS YOUR NEEDS. #5. SURRENDER- NOONE FULLY UNDERSTANDS THE ENORMOUS MASSES OUR CREATIVE ENDEAVORS REACH. SO LET US SERVE YOUR NEEDS. HAVE FAITH IN THE GREATER GOOD OF THOSE YOU NETWORK WITH. CONSULT A SPIRITUAL CONNECTION. A TWO FOLD CORD IS HARD TO BREAK. BUT A CORD THAT GROWS FROM EXPERIENCE WILL NEVER DIE.

    I wouldn't touch this one with a bargepole. Call me old-fashioned, but I'd want my publisher to be on familiar terms with the English language (and the capslock key).

    Let IndicalPromotions.com Bring Your Book To Best Seller Status With Help From Our Experts In Editing-Formatting Cover Design And Promotions
    https://www.facebook.com/charles.bryant.7359
    Who are these "experts"? The only other person associated with Indical is Mr Bryant's wife Dawn, another self-pubbed writer in urgent need of an editor, whose Facebook reveals that there's more to Indical than books:

    Indicalpromotions.Com
    SHOP INDICAL

    Books-Gourmet Foods-DVDs
    Housewares-Sporting Goods
    And So Much More
    https://www.facebook.com/dawnjbryant?fref=ts
    The Bryants don't seem to have done anything to promote their own books, Charles' Scarecrows and Skyscrapers and Dawn's The Lake, which appear to have no internet presence outside Facebook.

    All in all I don't think I'll be taking up Indical's ringing challenge:

    Don't be a dying remnant of the old, step into the new. Become a part of the adrenalin fueled snowball known as INDICAL PUBLICATIONS AND PROMOTIONS.

    This "dying remnant of the old" thinks Adrenalin Fueled Snowball would be a great name for an 80s rock band. Puts me in mind of big hair, eyeliner, spandex, and wedge-shaped guitars.
