    Wise Ink Creative Publishing

    They're quite new.

    I'm not trying to sign with them or anything, just intrigued and curious about what they are, exactly. A hybrid publisher of sorts? They seem to get some kind of local press for their authors. Someone in another forum suggested that they're a vanity publisher, but to me they look more like a service for self-pubbed authors.

    Looks like they help indie authors target the market, launch, and publicize? Yet the couple of the titles I looked up on Amazon *do* list Wise Ink as their publisher, so I don't know. I recognize a couple of names on the team as legitimate, but I have to wonder. Do they accept all submissions or is there a selection process? (They encourage authors to "tell us about your book" so you can do a brainstorming session of some kind--is it a pitch then?) When they talk about "affordable" printing, though, it sounds like the author is paying. So . . .

    They mention Ebooks, Off-set and PODs. Then talk about which would be right for them.
    Ebooks and Off-set, obviously. Don't chain bookstores ban PODs from being stocked, or has that changed recently?

    Their whole site seems dedicated to the Author as well, which isn't a good sign.
    I googled one of their listed 'New Releases' as well (Harry Potter and the Art of Spying) it's on Amazon from 2014. Maybe they mean a reprint?

    I had a quick look. They look like a company that sells writing and publishing services. Vanity publishing, basically. They'll take money for helping you write (including finding ghost writers), designing, printing, marketing...basically whatever you're willing to pay for.
