Anyone had any dealings with this small publisher? They've only got a couple of releases listed - looks like they're just starting out.
There's no information about who's behind the company.
Yet Kraken recently released Staring Into the Abyss, a collection of short stories by Richard Thomas. Odd.We accept unsolicited novels, novellas and short story collections, up to 120.000 words. The minimum for short story collections is 50.000 words. We do not accept short stories. Generally, collections are a harder sell for us than novels.

We are indeed a very small outfit.
In regards to short story collections, you're looking at the updated submission guidelines. After accepting a number of short story collections, we'd like to move more towards novels. So while we do accept them, the chances of them getting accepted are lower.
In what sense does it vary? Do some authors get a higher royalty percentage than others? Or do you calculate net differently in some circumstances?
