It's a scam. They feed all submissions to their vanity press. Don't fall for it.

Got a rejection but they said their new division was interested I believe that they use query tracker to feed unsuspecting authors to their vanity publishing division for a fee of over $3000. My thoughts are. If they don't think the manuscript is good enough for Wido publishing then why would I pay them to publish it under their vanity press. think about it before you do.

Received the standard rejection Sept. 11, received an email 11/14 saying "we sent you a request for your full manuscript on Sept. 11, please send it." I put this down to clerical error and sent the MS. Received an "offer" on Nov. 21 from their vanity press division with their fee of $3K+ buried deeply in the small print - I will not be signing this contract. ;)

Other vanity presses have been crawling out of the woodwork since then; I wonder if they sell the contact info they collect?

I too was offered the hybrid option. If I'm going to self-publish, I'd prefer to keep ALL the royalties.

Queried WiDo.
Said it wasn't right for them but their hybrid publisher was interested in seeing the full manuscript.

Still trying to decide if that's the route I want to go.

Has anyone published with E.L. Maker and how has that been?
