    Google shows a few titles from the 1970s, but their website seems to be down, and there's no recent news. I'd avoid them.

    Lightbulb I am going nuts!

    You all know the story I am sure. The manuscript is finished and has gone out to many people, agents and publishers. Offer so far from PublisAmerica and NY Literary. I ditch PA idea and then come one here and read about NYL. I THINK I have written a decent bk, as I am sure many here feel the same way. This is nuts. I do not know who out there to trust. On Grace I had to search for Grace publishing and then pked the one about Christian romance and writing and it took me to their site. Tks for reply Lloyd.

    Are you confusing Grace publishing with Grace Abraham publishing? The latter does Christian romances I think. I think Grace Abraham is legit, although P&E doesn't list them.

    This is just my opinion: It's 'ByGrace'. Searching just brings up a few announcements by accepted authors. Fictionwise ranks suggest low-ish sales but okay for a small e-publisher/POD Press. Not listed at places like predators & Editors. Nothing to suggest they are anything but what they seem--a publisher that is a few years old with a dozen books out. Nothing to suggest they get shelved in stores but online distribution seems respectable.

    huliab, veinglory is right on. Before you get yourself into something you might regret, do some more research on this site. Do you understand what POD really means? Do you understand the way commercial publishing works and how books get into bookstores? This site is full of posts by good folks who jumped into things without finding how deep the water was. Do yourself a favor and look before you leap.

    I don't see anything about this small press that is deceptive or underhand. If you want to be published by a company that is carried in large bookstore chains and selling many thousands of copies all you need to do is get their names from the spines of books in those same stores. There are many kinds of publisher but it is reasonable to expect writers to familairise themselves with how things work before they leap into anything.

    Unhappy I keep trying

    I have done tons of research. Everytime I think ok maybe this will be it, well you know the story..bad reputation. I researched big publishers and have about 250 query letters out. I am a psychologist, who after writing and trying to publish a book, needs a therapist! I thought when I heard from NYL, ok this could be it, but with research on here, well I guess no.
    I do want to get the bk into the big market. It is a story about all the tricks of the trade living as a paraplegic for 23 yrs and staying in shape mentally and physically. I really wrote it for my children, but there is so much self acquired knowledge written within. Tks for your help.

    I'm a psychologist too as it happens, snap [although this screen name is my less serious alter ego]

    I suggest you try over at the non-fiction forums (or memoir?). They are good at suggesting strategies, publishers etc for books on specific topics... it can cut a lot of time to find some people reserahcing publishers in your topic.

    Mostly just pinging a ported thread to make sure y'all saw it.

    As always, read the guidelines carefully before submitting.

    Weighing in on an old thread

    Hi,
    I'm the owner of By Grace Publishing. I ran across this thread from my traffic tracker, and wanted to reply to it.

    Just as a little information, we are a romance e-publisher. We also partner with a print on demand company to offer our titles in print. We release only one title a month, because we would prefer to publish a few good books than a large quantity of poorly written romance.

    As someone said, always look at guidelines before you submit a manuscript. Knowing a publisher's needs will save you a lot of stress and disappointment.

    If you have any other questions about us, feel free to email.

    Do you mean "Grace Associates"?

    Publisher's Place in Huntington, WV is owned by John Patrick Grace, and one of its sub-divisions is "Grace Associates." Google "John Patrick Grace" and "Publisher's Place to find out more.
    This is the link to their web page.
    http://www.publishersplace.org/home.htm

    I have met and like Mr. Grace. Don't know a lot about his publishing business.

    "Grace" is a common name. That's why we like to see the URLs of the places under discussion.

    My url was listed by the original poster. I would have never found this thread otherwise. I followed my site tracker here last night, and couldn't resist answering since the writer was asking about me.

    I presume that you aren't associated with "Grace Associates"?

    I've known Sheila for years. And she isn't part of Grace Associates. She is exactly what she says she is. Nothing more, nothing less.

    They seem to be legit; whether publishing with any of 'em is a good idea I'll leave to others to decide.

    So the username is a coincidence?

    By Grace/Moonlit seem fine especially for the more inspirational end/less erotic end. There are a few other similar epubs out there, I can PM names if you want them.

    By Grace/Moonlit are owned by the same person -- Sheila Holloway. And she posts on this board under her own name. They are both legit.
