I often read this Forum and go through the beware site, and I thank you all very much for the suggestions you give there, they're very useful for one like me, who's trying to have her book published.
I am really sorry if this question has allready been asked. I made a "search" on "Donard" and nothing came out.
I wanted to know if somebody received complains about Donard Publishing. You can find its site at www.donardpublishing.com I wanted to know, because they make monthly competitions, and I planned to partecipate to them.
But I was left doubtful, because recently they have made a new type of competition (called "winner take it all") where people is required to pay a fee to submit the entry. The story will be then judged from the votes of the visitors of the site and the winner wins the full amount and also gives the permission to Donard to publish the story for one year.
Then, they have a sort of POD service, with also editor and everything. They say that, "if you don't get your book published or accepted by an agent after having had it edited by our service, we will publish it".
Did Writers Beware have received complains about this publisher?
Thank you for your help! :grin
