    Atlantic National Books

    This company started following me on Twitter. Their acquisitions editor has that they're accepting unsolicited submissions, but I can't find any information at all. Has anyone ever heard of them?

    Yes, I'm a writer. No, I don't want to write your memoir for you.

    The website doesn't inspire much confidence, starting with the title field (which still reads "My Blog | Just another WordPress site" on the main page), continuing through the blandly "informative" articles all over the site, and definitely into the "get published" page with its poorly-punctuated, vague call for "professional writers like you" to submit to them: http://www.atlanticnationalbooks.com/get-published/

    No info on who they are, what they specialize in, what their terms are, or any existing titles they have.

    My first thought was that this company is a vanity press.

    Indeed, another of C. Lee Nunn's schemes. http://www.accrispin.blogspot.com/20...er-beware.html

    Like other incarnations, all sites posts/articles have been made "protected", and the About Page reads "This company is currently for sale."
