I got an email from these folks yesterday. On the surface they promise a lot, and they say you keep your rights. However, I am a wee bit skeptical. Has anyone heard of these folks?
Here is their website: http://publish-ur-book.com/
Here is the body of the email they sent:
My name is Don Ferraro and I am the President of PMI Publishing. My company specializes in promoting authors’ books to readers, literary agents, and major publishing houses. We just signed an exclusive deal with the three monthly publications in Florida to provide book reviews. As part of our agreement we are required to review between 36 and 64 books over the course of the next 12 months, which will appear in print. There is no cost for the review.
Our goal is to provide a win-win scenario for both our client and for you, the author… so all reviews will be positive (we are not looking to slam any authors). Our client has a reader base of in excess of 120,000 readers per month, so it should be a great way to promote your book. In addition to the reviews, we will also coordinate reader contests where our client’s targeted readership, typically parents ages 24-55, can enter a contest and win your book.
If you would like to have your book reviewed, please reply to this email and I’ll we'll coordinate a time for you and I to to discuss this opportunity further. If you have any questions, feel free to call me in my office at 407-624-3905.
