    Do you have a URL? Please don't make me Google it. (There may be many places with the same name.)

    In what manner or way do they seem crazy?

    If you have a book that would benefit by association with controversy, they're the crowd to run with.

    They were quite interested in one of my manuscripts. But I decline to accept the contract simply because I was really unsure about this publisher and wanted to go with one that I thought more of and was actually well respected.

    Barricade is definitely edgy, but it's a well-established commercial independent that has done quite well with many of its books and gets both industry and critical attention.

    Should be a piece of cake if you have good platform. They were wanting my southern women serial killer book.

    Wow Tina!!
    Has it published? I would like to purchase a copy. That is right up my alley. Did they treat you fairly?

    not published yet, still in the writing stages, but they liked the proposal. Sorry for the delay on this. I thought of you the other day when I was talking to Ann Rule and Sue Russell.

    I am starting to look at small presses and was wondering if anyone here has had recent interactions with them or has anything to add. I know this is an old thread, but if anyone knows if they offer any advances, that would be great to know. Thanks.
