    Donegal Bay Publishing

    Anyone have any dealings with them? I submitted a story and they accepted it to be published online, possibly in an anthology in the future.

    I stumbled across them when I was searching online for a children's book publisher.

    Is now primarily ebook.

    Donegal Bay Publishing Authors Guild - Updated May 2008

    We have updated the DBP Authors Guild. We are temporarily converting to mostly electronic publishing for general interest titles. This is a way for new authors to get their works in the public eye. We will proof and edit selected book length documents and place them for sale electronically on our websites, as well as on amazon.com. Books not chosen to be for-sale documents will be placed on our websites as free electronic documents. These will be published electroically as-is, without proofing and editing, as we do not have the resources to proof and edit every single submission we get. This currently is a very small market, but we expect electronic books to continue to gain in popularity, just as other electronic media have replaced standard media. Electronic books that receive favorable reviews online may be considered as candidates for standard publishing.
