    Destiny Whispers Publishing, LLC

    Small 'indie-type' press. Been around at least since 2014. They offer editorial services through Destiny Rose. Currently sponsoring a writing contest with an entry fee and the grand prize a publishing contract with them. I'm making no stance either pro or con, just wanted to start a thread in case anyone has dealt with them in the past, or will be looking at them.

    From the landing pages of two of their sites:

    "Gone are the days of brilliant manuscripts that never getting published."

    "Your books spark a fire and touch readers hearts!"

    Further down:

    "We are proud to welcome FRED A. BREDE and LISA ACERBO as our newest DESTINY AUTHORS!"

    Considering Lisa Acerbo is listed elsewhere as Creative Director of the company, this seems like kind of a no-brainer.

    Their third writer, Leslie Stuart, co-owns the company. So basically they publish one author who doesn't work for the company. His book came out in July of 2015.

    Their covers aren't the worst I've seen, but they aren't the best, either.

    These people seem well-meaning, but according to their bios, neither of them have any publishing experience to speak of. I would advise anyone considering them to wait two years and see how they're doing.
