Hi

Has anyone gone through Arima Publishing? They have offered to "publish" my book for £575, including an ISBN number, copies for libraries, and to be on amazon etc etc...

Is this something I should avoid?

Thanks,
Gwen :)

You never pay to be published. At least not by a commercial publisher. So unless your goal is self publication (and if it is there are cheaper and better outlets, Lulu.com is one of them) stay far far away from any company that wants YOU to give THEM money.

Money flows towards the author.

And welcome to AW!

Adding link.

Per their site, that special ended in March 2008.

The total cost is £575 and the promotion is available until the end of March 2008.

You aren't being offered publication, you are offering to pay them to print your book. If that is your goal, then there are less expensive ways to get your manuscript printed.
