    Alexis Press

    Hey, y'all,
    I just got followed on twitter by an Elizabeth M. Bennett from Alexis Publishing. I searched through the threads and didn't see anything. Anyone know anything about this company? I'm headed over to P+E to see if there is anything on them over there. Thanks to anyone who can help me out on this.

    Founded last year, no books listed on the site, grammar and punctuation errors, no apparent publishing experience on the part of the acquisitions editor, no indication of genres accepted, and oriented toward authors ... pass.

    Thanks

    That's what I suspected. Can't find anything on the editor at all. Must be a fishing expedition. Thanks for your help.

    Here we go again:

    We will review your manuscript without the old red tape or gatekeepers of the past with various requirements such as authors being represented by literary agents, celebrity status, or having already published a good seller.
    http://www.alexispress.com/how-to-submit-manuscripts/
    Yes, because it's impossible to get published unless you have an agent, are a celebrity or have already been published.

    *sigh*

    I came across some more info here:

    What type of submissions are you looking for:

    Academic, Adventure, African American, Aging, Biographical, Crime, Cultural, Current Affairs, Ecology, Educational, Fantasy, Feminist, Health, Historical, How to Books, Humor, Inspirational, Literary Book, LGBT, Literary Criticism, Literary History, Memoir Book Publisher, Mystery, Philosophy, Political, Pop Culture, Romance, Science, Science Fiction, Self Help, Short Story, Suspense, Thriller, Travel, Western, Young Adult.

    All "articles" are now password-protected, the submissions page has been wiped, and the About Us page reads "This company is currently for sale." No sign of any books published.

    ETA: Oh, yeah. This was one of C. Lee Nunn's schemes: http://accrispin.blogspot.com/2013/0...er-beware.html
