    Hi,

    Has anyone heard of, or had any experience of, these people?

    Cheers
    Of all the things I've lost,
    it's my mind I miss the most.

    There's a review of the website itself here:
    http://www.dooyoo.co.uk/internet-sit...co-uk/1006609/
    suggesting some reservations.
    And this looks like an advert for their editing services (Jenny Hewitt is the same person as Jacqui Bennett, which makes it look rather dubious)

    Yeah, Pathfinder Paperbacks (the affiliated self-publishing operation) closed back in March '05.

    MM, what sort of service are you looking for?

    The founder Jenny/Jacqui passed away recently. Current staff are Doug Watts and Rosemary Bickle.

    ETA: Rosemary moved on to found Write for Children (http://writeforchildren.co.uk/) and Publish Write (http://www.publishwrite.co.uk/index.html).

    Doug still active, at least into '14.
