    New Line Press

    I am interested in finding out about a publisher called "New Line Press." I went to their web site at www.newlinepress.com. This one-page web site listed that it had one novel, an acquisition of an existing novel. Further, that it had just one (and brief) sentence in it and the publisher on its banner web site incorrectly spelled "acquisition." Also, that there was nothing else to click on. And, finally, New Line Press claimed to be a subsidiary of a publishing house in established 26 years ago -- but doesn't say what this publishing house is (e.g. -- a subsidiary of Bantam). Does ANYBODY have information out there on New Line Press?

    Re: New Line Press

    seems odd. i wouldn't trust an inept start-up unless i really knew more about them.

    here is the new line link to amazon:
    www.amazon.com/exec/obido...s&n=507846



    their new title was originally publish by Gardenia press (you might find more about them by going through some of the bewares posts. i vaguely remember it somewhere in here).

    www.amazon.com/exec/obido...s&n=507846



    also, check out Preditors and Editors.
    www.anotherealm.com/prededitors/pebg.htm

    apparently, gardenia filed for bankruptcy. maybe New Line is the new gardenia. maybe dave or victoria heard about them.

    Helpful answer; thank you

    Thank you, Emeraldcite. P&E does not have a listing for New Line Press, good, bad, or indifferent. The copyright on the web site says 2004 so perhaps New Line is a startup formed by somebody. It is curious, though, that a new web site for a new (maybe) book publisher would list an acquisition book but not its first-run books nor its parent company. Perhaps it should be followed carefully to see what develops. (Maybe into something good?) There's not enough information to tell right now.

    Thanks again

    Go For It!!!

    Don't be scared! Copywright your work and send them a copy of something you want published! See what they have to offer you! The market is too small to be afraid of risk taking. And for the be not the first business... We would be in England drinking heavily taxed tea right now if some of our forefathers weren't the first!!!

    Bent Brain,

    Can you tell those of us reading your posts a little bit about yourself and your credentials? I mean, we know who Uncle Jimmy is and why his advice is important...

    just wondering:shrug

    Their site has two books listed now, both of which are by Catherine Burr. It also states that submissions are by invitation only. I suspect a small press or self-publisher. A Google search produced only this thread.

    Most recent books are from '14, and are Kindle editions of earlier pbs. Still actively promoting, though.
