I am interested in knowing if there are any negative reports…

Customer Question
I am interested in...

I am interested in knowing if there are any negative reports on the Red Bank company: Newman Springs Publishing. They are a book publisher and distributor…they refer to themselves as "publishing partners" with authors.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? And is a local attorney or other consumer protection advocate helping with this?

I live in Paramus, New Jersey and I am an author in search of an agent and/or a publisher. Newman Springs contacted me recently. What they offer seems almost too good to be true and you know the story about that.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you contacted the manufacturer?

No, not yet. Before I even do that I wanted to know if they have a good reputation (do they really do what they say that they do).

They have a rating of an A- on the BBB: here is a link to that page.

You can verify their business registry here:

As with any contract, the terms would need to be reviewed to determine if it has the desired intent and to ensure that the party's rights are protected.
Normally an attorney will review documents for a fixed fee rather than having to retain an attorney for long term assistance.

An attorney can be located through the county bar association.
