    New Horizon Press

    New Horizon Press? Had a friend who had a bad experience with them (their editing stunk, to put it nicely), but don't know if that was a one-time deal or not. My manuscript fits their criteria perfectly. Thanks!

    Never heard of them, but just checked out their site and they have some interesting titles for sale.

    I queried them once.
    I got them off Writers Digest, but I can't remember too much about them.
    I guess this didn't help at all, lol.

    Tina, when you say you "got them off Writer's Digest," you don't mean the back of the magazine, do you? Because that would be bad.

    Any updates on this publisher? I have a children's manuscript that might be appropriate for them - curious if anyone has had any experiences with them since the last post.

    As an author who published at New Horizon Press -- and who personally knows several other NHP authors -- my advice is simple: run as fast and as far in the other directions as you can. From contract issues to royalty payments to editing to communication with the author, this house will only break your heart.

    If you're smart, you'll pick up the phone (or email) and contact any NHP author you can find and ask for a personal reaction. To date, I have found NONE who have a positive thing to say about this house.

    Avoid this house.

    I'd encourage anyone looking to sign with this publisher to drop me a PM, I'm happy to talk about my experience privately.
