    Worldwide Publishing, Inc. / Literature Broadcasting

    Has anyone heard of these guys? I don't see them on P&E. I submitted a query to them and I got a pretty quick response (phone call) which is making me a tad suspicious.

    Legit? Not? Any words of help would be welcome.

    I googled, but all I came up with was Warner Worldwide Publishing Company. Is it them?

    Need an address, as Worldwide Publishing Company is pretty generic.

    The first one I found was in Spain, and doesn't seem to have anything but this uninformative page here: http://www.worldwidepublishing.net/

    Or...
    Right down at the bottom of this beautifully laid out page, is the following text:

    Here's the web address...

    The web address is: http://www.literaturebroadcasting.com/. It's a totally cheezy website.

    These guys are located in Davie, Florida.

    Please disregard my query. These blighters are stating that they have published a couple books but I could only find one on Amazon and it was published in 2002 by another publisher.
    Dear God - Please help me to find an honest and effective literary agent sometime before I die.
    Peace.

    Here is an update Back when, and before Perry Campanella used the Internet to publish, it was difficult to find his business and business associates, though this has
    changed since:

    or Just Google Perry Campanella ( simple ay )
