I would refer them to Slushkiller for the reasons why that is true. (ETA: As in why so many titles are rejected.)With royalty publishers rejecting over 90% of titles submitted, self-publishing is often the way to get your message or story told.
I don't see any fee (am I missing something?), but this is a little troubling:
The first 50 submissions (or a significant number of them) could be nigh well unpublishable. What if they're fanfic or garbage text?The first 50 submissions in each category will qualify for the competition.
Successive submissions are eligible for a prize as outlined on the Prizes page.
Ah, but look at the prizes:
See my quote above about the first 50 submissions.Silver Lining Prize:
Everybody after the first 50 will get:
an $800 website for just $400 (plus author pays $15/month hosting fee)
a $50 Greyden Press gift card for publishing services
And what do you get for an $800 website? For a $400 website? You can spend that $15 per month (or less) on private hosting and get your own domain. Perhaps I've missed something, but I don't see web hosting and design services on their site, so it's hard to know what someone would be getting for that money.
I'd rather have an $800 sandwich for $400. I think I'd see much better use in that.

I spend about $5 bucks a month for my own domain. It's not too incredibly snazy but I like it. My web host gives me free mailboxes, were incredibly attentive during the latest round of brute force attacks and if I get tired of the freebie word press themes, they will do a custom one for about $50. I had to pay for a year in advance, I got a full backup of my site, personal info obscuring, my domain, etc. for about $80 per year.
I checked out the site you listed. Went to their "bookstore." It had 5 titles on the front page, one book for $129. And not titles I would want to read. At all.
