    The only legit company I can find for the name "GMI Publishing" is as an imprint of Greenleaf Publishing. In that case, GMI stands for "Greener Management International" and publishes books and journals on environmental issues. Greenleaf is based out of the UK and appears to be a well-established niche small publisher. Is this the company you mean, or is someone else holding themselves out with the same name? Since you queried them, what is their address (or at least city/state?)

    This is all I could find out...

    GMI, an independent publisher headquartered on a 150 acre farm in Shauck, Ohio, is a collegial effort of a couple of old guys with over 70 years combined hard work and experience in big-time media and big-time business, which includes a masters degree in cross cultural communication,a couple of decades as a big-shot talk show host, CEO of three national corporations, founder of Olympic Gold Medalist organization, published writer of books, magazine articles, movie scripts,business plans, legal briefs, fathers of 9 incredible children (including Asian, Indonesian, African American, English)... and other noteworthy accomplishments.
    If you have written the next national best seller, get in touch, please. We will send you an airline ticket...
    but we would like to take a peek at the manuscript first.
    Forward us as an MS Word or PDF file of a really good query to "wparrish@gmipublishing.com".

    Which leads us, then, to http://gmipublishing.com where we learn a) that their HTML skills are minimal, b) that they have three books out, Fatal Probe, The Ping Pong Conspiracy, and Light Not White: Racism and the Church, all with dismal Amazon numbers, and c) they have two spec movie scripts.

    I have to agree, the web site is horrible.

    What I don't see in their credentials is any experience in publishing. Not good.

    No activity since 2005 = not an active publisher.
