    [Publisher] Linden Bay Romance

    I have sent my manuscript to Linden Bay. Has anyone heard of it? Is it any good? What e-pubs are the best? I'm also pursuing traditional, but right now e-pub is fine for me, as long as they also have POD books for free. I write romance, both regular and erotica. Thanks for any help.

    Their website: http://lindenbayromance.com/

    Noticed this on their submissions page:

    1 August 2006 - SUBMISSIONS CLOSED
    Due to the overwhelming volume we've experienced in recent months, Linden Bay Romance will not be accepting any further submissions at this time. Look for an announcement about our reopening later this autumn.

    As I haven't dealt with them, I'm hoping someone else will be able to help you with that.

    I know some of the people involved and was, in fact, published in their first charity holiday anthology. I haven't submitted since then because their main focus is erotic romance and that's not the area I'm writing in.

    I will note that All Romance eBooks was founded by two of the three founders of Linden Bay -- the third founder, Maria Mopeth, is no longer with the company.

    The question still remains:

    "Why send a manuscript, query, partial, etc. to someone and THEN ask questions regarding their legitimacy? Shouldn't those questions be asked BEFORE you submit something or sign a contract?"
