Terrie Woods Publishing

Hello! I'm looking for feedback on Terrie Woods Publishing. It's a minority house, based in NYC, I believe. Much appreciated!

Cowboy.

The errors throughout the website do not inspire confidence.

Eric Enck posted on AW a while back, and claimed some success with them (sales around 8,000, IIRC). He had a fan base to draw on, though.

Have you seen the books in stores?

Cowboy, by the time you've trimmed a half-inch off the width and an inch off the length of every page of your manuscript, you'll wish you'd found someplace else that accepted unsolicited manuscripts, guaranteed.

African-american oriented small press. Completely legitimate, as far as I'm aware.

Just for grins and giggles I sent in a query on their web mail form. I asked if they truly meant 8X10" paper and told them that to get such a size, one would have to buy 8.5X11" paper and have it trimmed to size.
