    Severn House Publishers / Creme de la Crime Ltd

    Anyone know anything about Creme de la Crime?

    Their submssions guidelines are a bit off-putting, but they do accept submissions.

    I agree with the off-putting. Can you find their books in local stores? Much can be forgiven if they make the sales.

    Here's the front page for folks who don't like Flash intros: http://www.cremedelacrime.com/home.htm

    Any one have any ideas why they are closed to submissions?

    I remember going to a crime event at my local library some years back where they gave a talk. I didn't rate them highly once I learnt they charged a handling charge for submissions. I see via google that they also charged 25 if you wanted feedback on your submission.

    I believe she recently sold the business to another publisher, so the sub closure is probably related to that. She posts weekly on the Dead Guy blog, so you can probably find information from reading her last couple months' posts. (Link to her posts specifically)
