I don’t know about Publish America, I have heard they don’t edit their books and you won’t find them on the shelves of Barn and Noble.
I think they sound good and they excepted my manuscript too, but I have to make sure how they do business.
But I can tell you NEVER pay a Publisher any money at all. They are to pay you royalties from your work. Your the author.
AND NEVER SELF PUBLISH A BOOK OR A VANITEY PUBLISHER. YOUR BOOKS WON’T BE SOLD. JUST HAVE PATIENTS AND DON’T GIVE UP, SOONER OR LATER YOU’LL FIND A GOOD PUBLISHER.
AND NEVER SIGN A CONTRACT WITHOUT A ATTERNEY TO READ IT FIRST.
