    [Digital conversion] Stallion Publishers

    Just a heads up. It seems like there's a new company spamming writers with offers of e-editions and e-book conversions / publication for "books / catalogs / brochures / reports / magazines."

    Yahoo caught it in my spam filter, and the email is full of links, but I'm not in the mood to go clicking into unknown territory. Anyone else get tagged by these guys?

    The only Stallion Publishers I could find is this one and it's not a new company.

    I got it. Went right into spam and I deleted. Things that go into spam scare me. I'm certainly not going to pull them out and start clicking on links. I think this kinda defeats the purpose of putting it out there.

    They spammed me, too. Based upon the email it was sent to, they harvested my email from either facebook or my blog.

    Seems to be geared more toward business and authors than readers. I take them to be a distributor more than a publisher...

    To whit:

    Stallion Publishers is the next generation digital publishing software which delivers your publications across the world on any web enabled Mac, PC, iPhone & iPad. Enrich your publications with hot links, videos, tracking and more with Stallion Publishers.

    If you want to lower your distribution costs, reach a wider audience and increase advertising revenues, Stallion Publishers will convert your printed magazine into an online magazine, also known as a digital magazine or e-magazine. We can also optimize high-res PDF catalogs, travel and other collateral materials into digital versions.
    One can also keep the final product "private", so this is a software/process vendor, not a publisher per se. But a spammer is a spammer.
