Magic Lamp Press

Magic Lamp Press
Evaluated 29th of August 2011

Only print book, no e-book to date. Their books are available on Amazon through CreateSpace, which means POD. In other words, an author is saving on the costs of publishing with CreateSpace but looses on the royalties percentage. As they do not seem to have an independent distribution network, nor do they seem to do a lot of promotion for their own website, not really interesting.
