AKW Books
Evaluated on 9th of July 2011
Updated 10th of November following mail from Publisher

With no editorial policy and no publishing services other than a place on their website, this seems like a fairly poor option, as all the work is done by the author and they simply cash in 50% of the author writing and marketing abilities.

The seemingly fair Terms and Conditions are offset by the total lack of support to the authors
