    [Promotion] Dreadful Cafe

    Anyone dealt with The Dreadful Café? They look a little hinky to me. They pay well but they want 5-year non-exclusive rights to the work.

    What makes you say "hinky"? Five-year non-exclusive isn't bad, in and of itself, if they pay well.

    I certainly don't intend to start writing query letters and synopses for short story submissions, so they won't be getting any subs from me.

    It's hinky. Non-exclusive rights means that if the work/author becomes tremendously successful, Dreadful Cafe doesn't reap the rewards. As a business strategy, that only makes sense if the publisher doesn't intend to do anything on behalf of the work.
