    Mermaid Press / Mermaid Publishing, LLC

    I just got spammed by "Mermaid Press." They sent me a press release for some self-published book called Stonewiser something or other, and I'm so irritated! I hate spam! And I hate the underhanded way of pretending to be a publisher when the company has just one book and one author. They even have submission guidelines, but it's obviously a front. What do you think?

    Wow, blatant.

    $15.99 for that 464 page paperback, currently $12.47 on Amazon. I think it's a front too. Too much blatant focus on that author's book. I have a feeling I know who's books would get the lion's share of the effort if they took on other authors...

    ETA: Occasional activity; most recent - audio versions of owner's books in '14.
