    Python Publishing

    I haven't seen a thread of this publisher on here yet, if there is one, sorry for the double thread.


    I believe this is a new publisher. It was brought to my attention by a friend who submitted to them. I'm curious to know if anyone knows anything about them?

    I'll start by saying that I have no personal experience with this group. I went to the website and I see some red flags. There is very little actual information on the site. It's quite sparse. They seem to have a group of people "we are a community of authors, editors, readers, and artists, to name a few." but, they have absolutely nothing posted about anyone having any publishing experience or contacts. They say nothing of authors they've worked with or books they've published. They have a rather unfortunate name, so it is hard to find them online. After some searching I would have to say that they have very little web presence at all. This has all the signs of being a group of people who have no experience in publishing who have banded together to make a small publishing company. I personally will not be submitting to them. Of course, the above is my personal opinion based on what I have seen from their website. I have no actual knowledge of this company.

    That's all I could deduct from a tour of their website and some google searching. Perhaps someone with access to Publishers Marketplace can tell us if they've sold anything and to who.

    I noticed that while looking on their website there wasn't any mention of published books or authors, unless I didn't look deep enough.

    I agree with Julianne, not enough info at all to want to make me submit.

    Panda did your friend ever hear back from her/his submission? Would love to know more.
    They only joined Twitter in Dec 2016 so I think your guess at them being a new publisher is correct

    According to Companies House, Martin Prescott (Director of Operations) and Dean Ritchie (Creative Director) were appointed on 24th November 2016. Python Publishing's address, 35-37 Ludgate Hill, London, sounds quite prestigious - until you discover that it's a virtual office/mail forwarding address shared with 433 other companies.

    The Python Publishing business model includes percentage profit shares for editors and cover designers as remuneration.
    I will assume that means they don't pay for anything.
