Hey, it can get a little rough in these forums, I know, but never feel bad!

I don't know anything about BHC except that they do a decent job at "appearing" relatively legit.

The problem is that 99% of the time, a vanity publisher is not legit. And I don't know of any proof that hybrid and vanity aren't the same thing.

No one can force anyone not to vanity publish. But kind advice would be: instead of paying someone $975 to use their name, take that money and pay an experienced marketing agency, use your own name and keep 100% of your royalties.

Vanities hope to capitalize before an author is the wider wiser. This is most likely why BHC doesn't associate direct names to the operation. If these Vern and Jodi people were on the all-positives, they'd make themselves public for vetting,
