Anyone have any dealings with them? I submitted a story and they accepted it to be published online, possibly in an anthology in the future.

Donegal Bay Publishing Authors Guild

The Basics:

Become a member for free when you submit to us your first manuscript

Fellow guild members will read your manuscript, filling out an objective Donegal Bay Publishing evaluation form

This evaluation form will help us determine which manuscripts are developed enough for publishing

Manuscripts that receive approval from your fellow guild members will be reviewed by Donegal Bay Publishing staff

Select manuscripts will be published by Donegal Bay Publishing

Manuscripts not chosen for print publishing will be published online, as long as certain basic content requirements are met

Manuscripts not chosen for print publishing may be printed at a discounted rate for Guild members

Guild members receive a free author webpage through our website, and link to/from members' manuscripts.

There are no monetary costs to Guild members

Join an organization dedicated to finding and developing people with writing talent. DBP's Authors Guild works as a team to get you published. Guild members submit their manuscripts, review potential books, write reviews, and help decide what gets published. This is an opportunity of a lifetime for writers.

How to Join/Submit a Manuscript...

Donegal Bay Publishing's Authors Guild is easy to join and costs you nothing. Membership is probationary until the first document is submitted to Donegal Bay Publihsing.

Submissions are passed around...anything meeting "basic content requirements" is published online...underlying push for self-publishing services.... I'd keep looking.

Is now primarily ebook.

Donegal Bay Publishing Authors Guild - Updated May 2008

We have updated the DBP Authors Guild. We are temporarily converting to mostly electronic publishing for general interest titles. This is a way for new authors to get their works in the public eye. We will proof and edit selected book length documents and place them for sale electronically on our websites, as well as on amazon.com. Books not chosen to be for-sale documents will be placed on our websites as free electronic documents. These will be published electroically as-is, without proofing and editing, as we do not have the resources to proof and edit every single submission we get. This currently is a very small market, but we expect electronic books to continue to gain in popularity, just as other electronic media have replaced standard media. Electronic books that receive favorable reviews online may be considered as candidates for standard publishing.
