Has anyone had any experience with, or does anyone know much about Cumberland House Publishing in Nashville? I'm thinking of submitting my non-fic history WIP there. They've got some impressive titles published, and they look good to me all in all, but I'd like to know more if there is more to know. Thanks in advance. :)

Glitchy website (of the dozen links I clicked in their catalog, most went to the wrong book or a "not found" page. (Doubly annoying cuz I really wanted to check out Igor's M*A*S*H recipe book. :cool:)), but if you can find their books in stores, .html problems are surmountable.

I haven't had any troubles getting around their site, but the fact that you did worries me just a tad. Hmmmm. Well, I have a small-but-decent list now of other places to submit to, all of which I know more about and feel more comfortable about approaching. Thanks for taking a look.

As would I. Maybe someone else will come along who has some firsthand experience with them. Hope so. They seemed like a good possibility for my project, but I don't like not knowing anything more concrete about them before submitting.

Huh. Apparently Cumberland's been bought out by Sourcebooks. Website much un-improved, IMO.
