Pros*: *Good contract.
*Good discount.
Cons*: *Their setup fee is a little expensive.
*Retail price is a little expensive.
*eBook publishing is bundled into their package and their offering in this regard is rudimentary at best.
*There is a 25 copies minimum when it comes to author purchases (so if you miscalculated your last order by five, you are out of luck).
Comments*: Their packages include 48 copies of your book, a fact that should make it easier for you to recoup some of your costs. They have a 'Jumpstart' package that with a $199.00 setup fee that does not include the 48 copies, but it does not include distribution beyond their site and requires you to format your own book.

This publisher has renamed itself, it used to be eBookstand.
