Light Switch Press

Postby hazel3603 » Sat Apr 05, 2014 7:31 am

Hi everyone. I have a query. On registering with Light Switch Press, I noticed it stated any manuscripts with obscene content will not be published. My manuscript has words like bastard, c..t, whore, pinky etc, but no more than this as these were names my parents called me. Do you think this would be deemed as obscene. It is a biography about my upbringing. Many thanks in advance....Happy writing everyone..x

You should look closely at this publisher before you make a decision. They are a self-publishing middleman who provide some services to the writer (generally at added cost). A quick look at their royalties indicates that if you sell an ebook at Amazon for $2.99, you'll get 30%, they'll get 40%, and Amazon gets the rest. Make sure the services are worth it for you.

I'm going to toss this out (maybe it should go elsewhere) but there is a way of more easily comparing services:



Writers & Artists is part of Bloomsbury which is a well-regarded publisher. But I would definitely look at comparisons to self-publishing service companies other than the vanity publishers listed on LS's site. (Unless LS considers itself a vanity publisher, in which case you should run, very very fast, in the other direction.)
"It seems rather like wanting to be ... a writer, rather than wanting to write. It should be a by-product, not a thing in itself. Otherwise, it's just an ego trip." - Roger Zelazny

It's really not that hard. Just tell me a story.
