    Hearts Desire Press

    Has anyone heard of them or worked with them? I have a short story that I am considering submitting.

    One of my pet peeves is not being able to find find out who is behind the press/publisher.

    I looked and I could not find that information.

    Thanks for looking into it. Not sure how I'll proceed.

    12 items on Amazon, and most of their Amazon sales ranks are currently over 1 million (not great). Covers are not bad for contemporary romance, and reviews seem generally good.

    OTOH they don't seem that willing to talk up their staff. And there's that worrying language about 'hybrid publisher' and 'author partnerships'. At the best, they seem an underperforming but well-meaning small press.

    Submitted a short story to them on 4/16. Received a nice form rejection today (6/09) that encouraged future submissions.
