    Xist Publishing

    Digital First Children's Publisher...

    You knew it was going to happen. There's children's e-books out there but I guess this one mother didn't like the formatting? So she took it upon herself, to write, publish and become a publisher all at once.

    I gotta admit, if they're going to make the text larger, pictures clearer and larger and have awesome illustrators, more power to them. And it looks like they have pretty good covers too. I honestly love the idea.

    There's an article on PW: http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/b...n-s-books.html

    And a link to their site: http://www.xistpublishing.com/wp/
    (although I did notice the link is slow to load...maybe cause of all those images? either that or my computer acting up.)

    Their covers are nice, but I'm confused why, in their "team" section, there's authors listed. I can see why they'd have a staff of illustrators, but authors?

    I didn't see that. I'm not sure why that is. But I am sure it is was analyzed enough, there could be other flaws as well. They don't mention anything about royalties or anything like that either. They do mention they do print for some books too, I wonder which ones are selected and why.
