    Cutting Block Books (formerly Cutting Block Press)

    Has anyone heard anything about this organization? They seem to be involved with a magazine and a few anthologies.

    http://www.cuttingblock.net/

    They also say that they've started paying "everyone" recently. Whatever that means...

    Thanks for any info!

    According to this post:

    Cutting Block Press is now officially paying all parties who participate in the publishing of our books. Every editor, every proofreader, every slush reader, every designer, every artist, and of course every contributing author...everyone will be paid for their efforts. [...]

    We've never been able to pay our readers or editors. We've always paid our contributors, the writers and artists. I have been in the long understanding that most small press companies haven't been able to budget amounts to pay thier editing teams.
    A few people subbed to them in '09. You could contact them and ask about their experience.
