Snafu is on a distinguished road
Nemesis Publishing

Hi all. I'm Snafu, a.k.a. I.J. Sarfeh from Southern California, a retired professor of surgery now embarking on a new career: Creative Writing.

I have six medical mystery novels under my belt, and now switched genres to literary fiction.

I'm looking for a publisher for my latest novel, From the Ashes of Strife. Has anyone here had dealings with Nemesis Publishing? Any info would be very helpful. Thanks.

You might want to take a look around the Beware, Recommendations, & Background Check (BR&RC) sub-forum. Good luck!

I have not. Hmm, a professor of surgery takes snafu as his screen name. *smile*

Welcome. I don't know anything about that publishing company. There's a lot of information here, though.

Seconding this. There are some investigatory experts over that way who will be very willing to help out.
