    Anyone know anything about this company?

    Discussion in 'Publishing' started by SeverinR, Mar 28, 2011.

    Loud Cloud Publishing

    Noticed this on face book, the websight is pretty lean, but the company is less then a year old.(Summer 2010)

    They specialize in ebooks.

    They don't specify genres or give many details on the sight.

    Jumping onboard with a publisher that has not track record is pretty risky.

    There is no information on the website that provides any details on what experience the publisher/editors/marketers have.

    There are plenty of ebook publishers out there that are established and have a track record, if that's what you're looking for.

    Also, they intend to use social media to discuss author submissions: "Your consent that we may blog, tweet, facebook or otherwise discuss your submission in a positive and creative fashion online, subject to our privacy policy."

    If it were me, I'd wait to see with this publisher. They haven't even put a novel out yet.

    The first flag was advertising on facebook.
    the second was no examples of their published works.

    I think its the reverse of unpublished authors. I want them to get a chance to make it, but there is so much potential for failure.

    I didn't like that clause either. Not sure why a professional company would need to discuss openly the work of an author.

    Yeah, I'd avoid. If I were you, I'd go through Duotrope's Digest to try to find a publisher for your work (Google it).
