  • Publisher seeking works featuring the Ripper

    I came across a publishers add seeking Original works about Jack the Ripper. If anyone on here would like info PM me. I don’t know if mentioning the publishers name is a violatin of the forum rules. If its not then let me know and I will cut and paste the add.

    Ads like that are often scams.

    real publishers don’t need to advertise for material. Small sham “publishers” take would-be authors ‘ rights and coax them into paying the publisher “for PR” or similar.

    just, you know, something to remember. Lots of stories about this online about authors being ripped off.

      Oh, you're talking about a vanity press type deal, like LuLu. This is a trade publisher. They are expanding their subject areas and one of them is true crime. I am not an advanced ripperologist, or even a novice ripperologist. I have read many books on the subject and have a theory on the murders that I have never before come across. I joined here to see if I can find anyone else that may have the same theory. As far as the publisher, I am an author and have a book in development with them right now. They are legit, ask for absolutely no money from the author, and pay a very hefty royalty rate.

        I presume they are looking for nonfiction, not fiction? Couldn't tell from your original post.

        Anyway, good luck!
