    [Publisher] Hydra House

    **NOT Random House's Hydra imprint**

    This guy: http://hydrahousebooks.com/
    Located in Seattle, WA.

    Okay, I'll admit from the start that I don't really expect much to come from this... but anyone know this publisher? It's tiny, but it also seems to be brand-spankin' new. I can't find any information since every time I try to look, I keep getting tangled up in Random House's problem. I have no internet searching skills beyond google, so that leaves me pretty lost. I thought it a (potentially) good sign that the publisher is looking for such a narrow range of authors (which I fit in), but that also means it's incredibly tiny and doesn't have much to go off of. Any advice? I never received an answer to my submission sent mid-November 2014, and I don't know if I should still count it as outgoing when looking at other pubs. Don't even know if I should waste my time with a nudge. I guess I'm pretty much just looking for general advice on how to deal with something so tiny.

    I am very breakable. Please don't hurt me.

    I am a newbie with an awful lot of experience. Or is it the other way around? Who knows? Nah, who am I kidding... I'm just an easily-scared newbie.

    They're not new - been around since 2011. If you haven't heard since 2011, you might ask if they got it. Ping them again. If they still are non-responders, at least you'll know. Otherwise, I'd move on to other publishers.

    Ai. My bad. I seem to have slipped and typed 2011 instead of 2014. Have they been open since 2011? Or was that just based on my slip? My bad.

    Ah; thank you for pointing that out. I have a bad habit of digging too far for the details that I tend to miss what is right in front of my face.

    It's okay. If publishers are going to release info on blogs, and if their authors do the same: *stalk those blogs*. You'll be surprised at the things intentionally or accidentally revealed.
