Posted by Victoria Strauss for Writer Beware

Novum Publishing is an Austria-based publisher that has expanded into several countries, including the UK and the USA. It also does business as United P.C. Publisher, and is incorporated in Florida as WSB Publishing Inc..

Basically, they only help people who get under the wheels and only because many publishers no longer care about the quality of books. Teenagers are buying the book from their Instagram celebrity. I find this situation a shame and something needs to be changed. There is an error in the development here.
