Came across this while looking at their one imprint "Science Fiction and Fantasy Publications" (http://www.scififantasypublications.com/). They also have imprints Love Knot Books (http://loveknotbooks.ca/) for romance, Wicked Tales (http://wickedtales.ca/) for horror, and Tumbleweed Books (http://tumbleweedbooks.ca/) for...everything else, I guess.
It looks like the whole thing is a one-man show and I'm not seeing anything offhand that suggests that he has previous experience before opening up four imprints. My impression's rather the opposite: not the best grammar on the (SF&FP) site, marketing is solely on the author, no advances, only books (currently released) are his own, focuses on new authors...
I actually found this place through a link on Twitter to a blog post (http://www.scififantasypublications....-time-to-blog/) where he rejects someone for not wanting to run a blog, but weirdly I can't find a link to their blog on the website itself. It looks like they push all their blog posts through social media, but you'd think you'd have an actual blog page for easy access.
I have no idea what he's trying to say with this part:
Is this a fancy way of saying he's got availability through the normal platforms?Science Fiction and Fantasy Publications is a content provider to a number of high profile companies; among these you will recognize Ingram, SONY, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, WH Smith and Apple. Unlike other publishers that use a third party to distribute their content, Science Fiction and Fantasy Publications profits from a direct relationship with many companies. We also distribute to many smaller companies such as eBooks.com, Diesel eBooks, as well as a number of international eBook retailers around the world.
