  1. In addition to the list above, how many are not mentioned here under the umbrella when Penguin Group merged (a company with a good reputation), and later also merged with Random House to form Penguin Random House?
    “On July 1, 2013, Author Solutions’ parent company Penguin Group completed a merger with Random House to form Penguin Random House.[15]”


  2. So, I guess Wikipedia needs to add a few more. “Author Solutions is the parent company of the self publishing companies/imprints AuthorHouse, iUniverse, Trafford Publishing, Xlibris, Palibrio, and Booktango.[2] Author Solutions also maintains partnerships with traditional book publishers Simon & Schuster (Archway Publishing),[3] Thomas Nelson (WestBow Press),[4] Hay House (Balboa Press),[5] and Guideposts (Inspiring Voices);[6] as well as with Writer’s Digest (Abbott Press)” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Author_Solutions


    • I agree. I’m glad this information is available for writers looking to self-publish. A decade ago, it would have been much more difficult for a writer to thoroughly research a company before deciding to invest their hard-earned cash. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.
