Has anyone dealt with this group? I found them through PM. They appear to be fairly new, specializing in childrens/YA fiction. They also appear to be committed to actually getting their books on store shelves. Any info would be appreciated.
It is amazing how quickly word spreads!! This is great, but I would like to clarify some concerns. Yes, I am the author of THE PACE and it is being released through a publishing company that I partner.
At first, I simply wanted to publish my book, but Lisa Paul not only wanted to back The PACE, she wanted to publish books for other authors as well. So, she made a deal- literally and now she owns and heads up the entire expansion of Lands Atlantic Publishing. I do not handle any submissions, nor do I have the power to offer deals. It all comes to and from her. And I have to tell you, she does a great job. The Pace will be released August 19th, and the editing and book design process has been fabulous. But, I totally understand your skepticism with not using a proven, large publisher. I was there too, but for me, it all boiled down to believing in my book enough to find a way to get it out there.
I wish you all the best in your endeavors. My advice would be to go with your gut- query big, hope big, and I wish you the best! But if you don’t get your “yes,” and are willing to start out with a small press, go ahead and query her. Lands Atlantic is an honest, family operated company that was built on the foundation of believing in a book and wanting to make things happen for others as wellJ. Only time will tell of its success, but there are some great books coming out in the near future, and that is exciting!! Thanks to all who visited my website! The Pace’s cover design will be added soon if you want to check it out!
It'd be great if Lisa Paul herself could pop on over and answer Doomie's questions, and also to specify who are the "leading distributors" that LAP uses.
