    Bonne Chance Press

    Does anyone know anything about this publisher? I couldn’t find it on P&E.

    Thanks,
    LordMark

    This is the first thing I saw when I looked at their site:

    Looking for the perfect gift? We now offer vanity press services~Email For a quote!
    Then I check their blog:

    Isn’t it time to start thinking about self publishing?
    Just what are they offering?

    In other words, what exactly do you get for your money with a larger publisher? Do you get PR? Maybe… for an added price?
    This is nonsense. As if a Big House or a reputable small press is going to charge you.

    Let’s talk content… did you know most major publishing contracts stipulate full editorial rights and content control? So your book gets published but its so drastically changed it is hardly recognizable. Why should an author have to be placed in such a compromised position?
    This is more nonsense.

    Is there any good reason this press came to your attention?

    Just the name of the company already made me leery.
