Red Hill Publishing has a contemporary approach to publishing. It differs from the old-fashioned model whereby writers often earn quite meagre amounts from work that might have taken years to produce. It's worth reading more of their philosophy of publication just because of the more equitable take they have on the way authors can keep better control of their own work (Barbara).
