    Carousel Press

    Has anyone dealt with this press? I did a search and didn't see anything, and they don't appear at P&E. Does anyone know anything about them? Any help appreciated. TIA!!!

    All I know is what's on the website and in Writer's Market. Small press, publishing travel books. That's about all I know at this point. I can't find much info. elsewhere so I was hoping someone here may have dealt with them.

    http://www.carousel-press.com/ They publish travel books, accept e-mail queries, looks like a wife-husband team.

    Hi, I'm new here and just going through the list of scammers. My log-in name is Carousel, but I have NOTHING to do with this group, I just chose Carousel as a name because I seem to be going around in circles and getting nowhere fast...please don't hold my name against me if this is a nasty-pasty group of rip-off merchants. I'll pop over to the newbie thread and go and introduce myself.

    No, no one thought you were related to these guys.

    I don't think anyone's called Carousel Press "rip-off merchants." They do seem to be very small.

    Since a publisher's job is to make works public, the first step with any publisher is to see if they are, indeed, making things public. Are any Carousel books physically on the shelf in your local bookstores?

    I know the feeling! In fact, I thought it was normal. Ah, well.

    And welcome!
