A "publisher" that's just starting up and is apparently attempting to recruit authors. A friend of mine received the following in response to an excerpt she had online:
The page with the info about this "start up" had me scratching my head, Thank goodness my friend is a smart cookie and has already decided to pass, but we thought we'd give a head's up here.I'm Kyle Davis and I represent the upcoming e-publisher Kaeru Digital. I've read (Title removed at request of author) and believe you have sufficient skill for your work to be refined and sold professionally. I'm recruiting authors to start (or continue) novels, which will be published and sold at launch of Kaeru Digital. I encourage you to learn more - the following article will explain Kaeru Digital in detail. http://kaeru-digital.deviantart.com/...s-it-363185068 If you are interested then please jump on board. There's at least two full months before launch and you will only need to finish the first full section within that time. You should keep in mind that this is professional work and you may be required to make significant revisions before it is published. You will also be required to complete certain writing activities such as detailed novel outlines and world planning. Please respond to me within 24 hours, whether you are interested or wish to decline. If you do not respond, I will attempt to notify you once more only and then speak no longer. You may choose to respond via comment on Figment or use my pre-launch contact address (email). This address will not be used after launch. Keep in mind that my regular working hours are 8:00am to 5:00pm U.S. Mountain Standard Time (MST).
