Hi all,
I'm trying to find a publisher for the Yan-nhangu learner's guide
(Yan-nhangu's a Yolngu language) and it's turning out of be quite
difficult! I want to publish it somewhere local if possible, and I
don't want to use a vanity press.
I've tried IAD press, but they sat on the ms for 18 months and then
said they would need a subsidy and couldn't start working on it for 2
years. Then I tried CDU Press; they made positive noises, then did
nothing for a year, and then decided they couldn't take the ms after
all). Aboriginal Studies Press don't have a single language book on
their catalogue so I assume that's a no-go.
Does anyone have suggestions for other publishers to try?
