Very legit. I haven't submitted to them, but they are on my list of independents. I don't know how valid this info is today, but until a few years ago they paid a small advance ($500-2,000, I believe). I don't know what they're like in terms of marketing & promo, but as posted above, Raincoast is reputable and you can find their books in bookstores (at least here in B.C.).
