    Do you mean this Storm Publishing, and this MJS,?


    Have you ever personally read any books that they put out? If so, what was your impression of them? If not, why not?

    Do they have a bookshelf presence in your local bookstores?

    Where did you hear about them?

    Assuming those Jim linked to are the ones in question:

    Storm Publishing: Only one title, from 2004 = not good.

    MJS Publishing Group, LLC: Pays on net = not good.

    This is from the MJS site:
    "
    Our Full Publishing Program

    At the beginning, when MJSPG agrees to publish your work, we will determine the costs and budget for the project. Your costs will include reasonable fees that will be repaid once your book starts to sell. After these initial fees are repaid to you and production costs are covered, you will receive a percentage of sales in regular royalties (percentage of net sales.) Your agent, if you have one, will receive a commission based on net sales, as well.

    Now, here's"


    I addedthe red letters, but read them twice. THey charge you and then pay you back IF the book sales cover production costs.

    Regards,
    Scott
