    [Publisher] MobileLoveStories

    This appears to be a romance ePublisher but I can't find any info on them aside from what they themselves have provided.

    through a website: http://mobilelovestories.com/

    and a facebook page with over 1200 likes: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Mobil...62866500468314

    and a twitter account with ONE tweet from 2012: https://twitter.com/mobilelovestory


    The only way I knew of them is because they sent my husband an email asking for stories for their upcoming micro-fiction anthology. (link to antho sub guide: http://mobilelovestories.com/mobilel...nce-anthology/ )

    How they got his email address, I've no clue. And I view that as a spammy red flag--sending out requests for stories to writers they have no prior relationship with. My husband is a writer but not published anywhere. It seems to me they are fishing for writers that don't know any better.

    Another red flag for me was the way they described the particulars of being published in their anthology. Authors receive a "single cash payment"; publisher buys non-exclusive rights upon acceptance and author is free to do with their story as they wish afterward; they want the query letter in a PDF (never in my life have I seen such a request).

    But maybe I am wrong and they are totally legit. Does anyone have experience with this publisher?

    Looks to be one author and her pseuds. (Exhibit A) Regardless, hasn't published anything since '14. No sign of anthology.
