Anyone have anything on them? They do YA novels.

A flapping red flag on the homepage:I think I'd rather trust my work with experts and editors. But that's just me. One of the four members of "the team" is a freelance editor, though. Of their four books, a couple are by members of the team.BookFish Books is not your average publishing house run by experts and editors. We're a house run by authors for authors and their readers.
They just requested on a friends pitch during pitmad but even the website they have linked doesn't work anymore (for me at least. Is it working for anyone else?)
Thinking this is no.
NAKED- available now from Entangled Teen

I only saw four books listed and two of them were written by the team that is in charge of your novel's destiny. That ain't necessarily a bad thing, but it seems to me like a group of people got together and made a website/company to showcase their work. No track record yet. I'd wait on this.
Bumping this thread due to lots of favoriting during #pitmad today. I like their covers, but, yeah, they don't seem to have any creds.
Their twitter contest is on Oct 13, 2015.
Here's the link to it: http://www.bookfishbooks.com/#!blank/c1uqy
Long time lurker here, finally signed up to post up what I discovered this morning. Their books are on amazon kindle, most for under a dollar. I get the impression they are not a hard book publishing company, so I think I'll be passing on this twitter contest.
Still, they are making a tempting offer to edit your stuff, should they favorite your tweet... So if anyone knows more about them, I'd love to hear about it.
So, went back and had a look at their amazon listings recently. Seems that they have hard versions available now. That's heartening. Also looks like they are expanding their author list. So, while I'm hopeful, I'm still wary. I do like that they offer to do edits... but at the same time, I don't want to be sucked into a gimmick because that looks like too good of a deal.

I really want Bookfish Books to have more creds than they do. They've faved my pitch once in Pitmad and once in SFFpit but I'm just not seeing it.
No one has anything new to add do they? haha
They liked one of my SFFpit pitches but I see on their website that they only accept novels up to 80K in length.

I participated in their Twitter contest, the reward for a favorite being a critique on the first three chapters. While nervous about new publishers, this was an awesome prize and I was thrilled to win. They gave me an incredible critique and even offered me a revise and resubmit. This is the kind of supportive environment I'd want to work in and I submitted my revision after a few months. Still waiting to hear back, but whether they want to move forward with me or not, I've had a great experience.

Let us know how it goes, AJ. Looks like they are doing more twitter contests here soon and I'd be curious to see if they are in fact growing as an agency.
Ahh, thank you for the clarification.
Hi! Any new or recent information/experiences with Bookfish Books?
