    Captiva Press / Placida Publishing LLC

    Does anybody have any info on Captiva/Placida Publishing? It's one of the many publishers I'm currently thinking of submitting to and before I do I'd like to hear any reviews toward them.

    Checking their Alexa data shows no real site traffic. Without site traffic I'd suspect they're not making any sales.

    I've seen their books on third party sites, and I do recognize one of the authors on their site.

    I recognize a couple of their authors, but they are also with other, much larger publishers.

    Their books are on B&N and Amazon, as well as their own site. They are not on All Romance eBooks/Omnilit.

    They are on All Romance. Search Placida.

    The fact they have some known authors of the genre, I would think that's a good thing.

    As of mid-December, site offline due to hacker issues and family emergency.
