    Waterhouse Press

    Website Link

    Does anyone have experience with or information about this publisher? From what I can tell, it's a relatively new (2014) venture from bestselling romance author Meredith Wild. They're open to direct submissions, but after perusing their stable of authors, I can't tell if they're only open to previously self-published authors with phenomenal sales. FWIW, I posed this question to them on Twitter and they simply referred me to their submission guidelines.

    From their About page:
    Waterhouse stands apart as a publisher that not only appreciates a strong and memorable story, but one that focuses on creating powerful, lasting brands for each of its authors. Our team prides itself on providing a highly-tailored publishing and marketing experience to the selectively chosen authors on our roster.

    If they have a submissions page and don't explicitly bar new writers, I would assume they're open to submission. You don't lose anything by trying :-)

    Happiness, is just a word to me
    And it might have meant a thing or two
    If I'd known the difference.

    You're probably right. I shouldn't assume barriers where there might not be any.

    FWIW - they've removed their submissions page altogether from their site. You can still find it by Google search, but I'm thinking this might be a not-so-subtle hint.

    Are you sure? The link is still there for me when I type in their Waterhousepress.com address. On the far right, after "News." Two different browsers. And it works when I click it.

    I tried it on two different browsers, but it doesn't show up with either. Nothing after the link for News. Have you tried clearing your browser history and then going back to their home page?

    I just tried it myself, having never been to this site before. The submission page is there for me, right where SoW said.

    Nah, they have that link set up to be hidden on mobile, but their test for that is whether your browser window is over or under 800px high. Weird choice.

    That is weird. Huh. All right then.

    Huh. That's such a strange requirement. Yeah, it's spot on: shrink the browser window, and the text vanishes.
