A member has been offered a contract by this epublisher, and I saw they don't have a thread yet so I'm starting one.
The first thing I notice is the incorrect use of an apostrophe in "genres" there on the very front page, and the fact that the text boxes are incorrectly spaced so some of the words are cut off. (Granted, the spacing thing may be excused a little bit by the fact that they don't open for another couple of months and may still be tweaking, but it's still not good.)
They have "Chic Lit" as a subgenre, which is one of my little pet peeves. It's "Chick." Chick. C-H-I-C is chic, pronounced sheek, and means fashionable and smooth and all of that. They also have a non-fiction book on the site, which is unusual.
They have a contest going on for their Grand Opening, with some awfully nice, expensive prices (registration at the Romantic Times convention, a Kindle or a Nook). The details are here, but unfortunately there are a couple of typos on that page as well; no apostrophe in "winners" for the 1st prize, which I'm sure if just a typo because they spelled it correctly just above, there's no "of" in the listing for the 3rd prize, and at the very bottom a note about how "Authors, staff and their immediately families" aren't eligible.
Just typos, sure, but a publisher's website really shouldn't have typos like that, IMO.
(ETA: there's also a blurb for one of their books, which I won't link to because I don't want to upset/embarrass the author, which contains the rather unfortunate line, "Once [character's] sister is murdered, she finds herself working with...etc." "Once her sister is murdered," makes it sound like it was a plan; "once that's done, we can get tacos," you know? And who found herself working with [other character]? The first character, or the murdered sister? The subject is off. Further investigation reveals quite a few more blurbs with grammatical/subject/tense/spelling/homophone errors: http://www.secretcravingspublishing.com/OurBooks.html. There's even an apostrophe error on one of their covers; "Today's," possessive, instead of "Todays," plural. So I have to admit that makes me wonder.)
Anyone heard anything about these people? I haven't.
