    Looks like they're just starting out, and the fact that the site is geared toward writers, and not readers, is not a promising sign. Also features the standard "we're not in it for the money" stuff. I'd wait to see what happens.

    Meh. They look like another well-meaning-but-clueless setup. Good publishers focus on a specific genre, they don't look to publish "fiction (of all flavors and genres)". Selling mystery isn't the same as selling horror or romance. Good publishers are more focused on selling to readers as opposed to attracting writers. Then there's the whole incorrect hoopla about how you have to know someone and the big bad publishers ignore new talent. Though they do claim to be signed with Ingram and that their books are carried in thousands of bookstores, they have no released titles, just three upcoming releases and two are by the same author. At best, wait and see. In the meantime query elsewhere.

    Well, two of the books are by the person who holds the domain.

    That's a bit of a red flag, but other things I see suggest that they're sincere.

    I'd give it a year.

    Blue Room Publishing has two novels released so far, both by Michael Ferrari. The first is 'Assault on the Senses.'

    There's no info on the website about who the owner or editors of Blue Room Publishing are.

    The Blue Room Publishing website is registered to Michael Ferrari of assaultonthesenses.com.

    Unusually for a book that has left no footprint in its genre, 'Assault on the Senses' has its own wiki page, which appears to have been written by the book's author.

    The book's blog/webpage (http://assaultonthesenses.wordpress.com/) is inactive but makes no mention of Blue Room Publishing.

    These are limited data, but they suggest that Blue Room Publishing falls into the category of "self publisher pretending to be otherwise".

    That Wiki is for the original 2007 edition, published by iUniverse.
