I don't know if I should have started three threads, one for each, but that seemed a little spammy.

I decided a little while ago to try looking at publishers in the state I live in. I knew they'd be smaller, but at least I could go there personally, right?

I've bumped my original list down to three but I can't, for the life of me find any information on them.

They would be

Career Success Inc.,
Epic Publishing Co.,
and
Joshua Tree Publishing (Centaur Books).


Do any of you guys know anything about these fellas? Maybe what kind of material they accept?

We do have a "one thread per publisher or agency" policy here, so I've changed the title of this thread, and started one for each of the other publishers you were asking about.

I think Epic and Joshua Tree are based in Las Vegas. I believe Epic is a self-publishing company. Not sure about Joshua. Never heard of Career.

More importantly, how did you come by the notion: "...but at least I could go there personally, right?"

There is no reason to choose publishers by location. (If anything, it's foolhardy, unless you happen to live in New York City, where 95% of the publishing world is located). You don't need to go to a publisher's offices to conduct your business with them (very, very few authors meet face-to-face with their editors).

I'm not finding any publisher by the name "Career Success Inc." Link? Where did you hear about them?

All I can find is a printer in Las Vegas, which looks to be exclusively for corporate materials.
