Hi Guys, Has anyone had any dealings with New Zealand based Lang Book Publishing? I don't think thy are a vanity publisher, but they don't look exactly 'traditional.' Anyone?

We distribute through Ingram, who has a world-wide footprint, partnerships with bookstores, and agents determined to sell your book. Bolding mine, I am confused about this.

Followed by this in their submission guidelines:

Manuscripts must be professionally edited before being submitted for publication. If you need a referral to an editor that Lang Book Publishing, Limited endorses, please ask for a referral to our partner editors who can do your full editing for $.025 a word, on average. We would prefer that if you are paying an editor that you contact us so the editor uses our authorized style sheet. (Bolding mine)Yep, ring the alarm. Smells like vanity.
