These guys followed me on Twitter. They do fiction and non fiction. Anyone dealt with them before?
The AW Amazon Store
Buy Books by AWers!
You'll search the company's website in vain for any info about its founders, but a quick Google reveals that TOPC author Michael Cameron is also the publisher. On his Facebook page he refers to TOPC as "those awfully nice people who publish my books", but his LinkedIn profile tells a different tale: http://uk.linkedin.com/in/michaelcameronauthor
I'd be put off by this lack of transparency.

If they publish only four full-length books, and two of them are by the publisher, that's a red flag for me.
The submission email address is in the otherwriter.com domain, which has a web page saying 'The Other Writer and The Ghost Writer are closed for refurbishment'. The Other Writer was Mr Cameron's freelance copywriting service; The Ghost Writer was his freelance ghostwriting service. I guess he's moved on from those to publishing.
Any more info on these guys? I see they have more authors there now. It says they distribute in the UK and the US. But who is the distributor? It's hard to find anything, Alice, you're right. I think because of the generic type name of the company.
Some of their covers look pretty good to me. I just wish I could find more info.
They look okay, I guess. But in their sub guidelines they state that they only place their books solely with Amazon Kindle and no other because they believe Amazon has the largest market share.
Things might have changed, but it could also mean that they still place books with Amazon, be it in the U.S. or Britain.
Are they accepting all fiction genres? I couldn't find a preference, but they have some thrillers and fantasy books listed.
