This "supports several editorially-independent imprints..." what the heck does that mean? Is that a customary thing?
When I think "imprint of," I consider that the quality etcetera is the same as that of the parent publisher, like it's a department within a business. This sounds like a looser association, as in maybe I wouldn't know who I was dealing with or what to expect from them.
Does anyone know what such wording means and how that differs from a "regular" imprint? Or am I making a big distinction where there isn't one?
