    Ksnyder:
    If you put your email in a post, it will be harvested by spambots. I'd suggest you edit it out of your original post.

    If you post a question in a thread, people will respond in that thread. That way the information is available for all readers, not just one member.

    Presumably you are asking about this Crosslink Publishing? (It's best to put a link in your original post, since there are sometimes multiple publishers our there with the same or very similar names.)

    It looks to be a small press, accepting Christian-themed fiction and non-fiction, with no/very limited distribution and marketing, poor-to-average stock cover art, and a contract for life-of-copyright.

    This bit made me go o_O
    CrossLink has adopted a simplified royalty agreement that returns 10% of retail price of all copies sold - even though none of the books will actually sell at retail price.
    (my bolding)

    And this bit made me go :O
    For authors who have strong initial sales, we offer an eBook program as an optional, purchased service. eBook conversion and distribution is available for as low as $1.10 per page, and results in high-fidelity eBooks...
    No. No, no, no, no, no.

    I like how they describe themselves as a "Traditional, Trade Publisher". And have a testimonial from an author on the front page.

    ROFL! Charging an eBook per page of an already edited and easily e-formatted book, from an author already making the publisher money!? Run Forrest, RUN! Seriously. Run.
    Please help me leave this country for a better life!
