  1. I’ve had a contract with Bluewood for some time now and feel our interaction so far has been aboveboard and professional. It appears they want to produce works that have a good chance of success.
    At the moment, we are in the stage of evaluating the overall size and scope of the work – they originally gave me a contract for book one of a trilogy and apparently did not realize the scope and what I’ve written so far.
    We are also in the process of creating a folder to draw readers to the work. It already has a ready made market as it’s a fictional portrayal of the founding of the Spanish Mission in California.
    While they are a small publisher with a limited list – I think quality as opposed to quality is important. I would give them a “good” rating as opposed to “fair”.
    Like you, I believe they could have a more interactive web site and/or web presence.

    Do you e-publish children’s books that have a picture /photo on each page? Suppose you are already published in paperback by CreateSpae.com?

    Thanks,
