    Syn Publishing

    This publisher showed up on my radar today (in a newsletter from a review site, but I can't find the e-mail now!) and I looked at their website. They seem very new, with few authors, but I'm wondering if anybody here can shed some light about them? I searched for a thread, didn't find one.
    Here's the URL: http://www.synpublishing.com/

    I'm not familiar with this publisher, but just a quick look at their site, one thing in particular sticks out to me. They claim to accept "all genres of fiction" but they obviously have a romance focus if not bias. The books on the front page all appear to be romances. Most of the submission guidelines are obviously geared toward romance and/or erotica (asking for a heat level, etc.) so I'm not sure why they don't just stick to what they know instead of trying to be all things to all people. Most small publishers are more successful when they focus on one or two genres, anyway.

    From their FAQ page they state about 100 days to edit? It's a little over 3 months which isn't long at all. Most places take a lot longer. The rush edit raises flags for me.

    Everything looked not quite professional. The page counter at the bottom was the icing on the cake.

    Google tells me that it's owned by Kimberley (Kim) Mullican, who writes under her own name and as Anita Cox.
    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Anita Cox is also one of the authors, so it seems this is an author/publisher. Not necessarily a bad thing, I think, but since there's no mention of publishing experience that I can see, I'll keep it in my 'check in a few years' file.
