    Eclectic Bard Books

    Anyone knows anything about this publisher? Is it legit? They have no website and use Wordpress as their main page.

    They're also on FB.

    The blog is engaging, but seems to be more about the publisher's writing journey than publishing. Kudos for enthusiasm. I don't have time this morning to search out more info on them.

    No submission guidelines (or at least not easily found), an @yahoo e-mail address, incomplete staff bios despite saying they've been around since 2013, and for what little could be found, lackluster author listing certainly doesn't inspire astounding confidence.

    I clicked on both Amazon book links and got the page not found message. What Thomas Vail said.

    It sounds pretty fishy to me also but I am new to the business I actually got contacted by this writer (who had asked for my help with a synopsis) who told me she had got a contract for two books from this publisher after having sent the aforementioned synopsis a couple days earlier. When I checked out the publisher I noticed she is the editor for the publishing house... so weird. I am not sure what the deal is but it sounds very suspicious.
