I'm not sure if this is the right place or if this should go on Bewares and Background Checks, but does anyone have any experience with Bowtie Press? I know they are affiliated with Bird Talk, Dog Fancy, et. al. I have a horse training-related book proposal, and since I recently sold to those two magazines and sold a ton of equine articles to Horse Illustrated in the late 1980s/early 1990s, I'm wondering if that would help my chances with them.
I did a search on the forums and didn't come up with anything helpful. Their submission guidelines are pretty clear, although they only list "Aquisitions Editor" instead of a name (I'll probably call them next week to see if I can get one), but I'd love to know about anyone's personal experience with them and if writing for the magazines makes them more kindly disposed towards you.
