Was in the chatroom today when some guy (presterjohn1) came in and asked if we were writers as he was looking for new talent. Had a few alarm bells go off in my mind but didn't think much of it, I answered what I wrote (shorts, poetry and novels) and he said submit it to alanworks.net and they would review it. I checked out the website and it didn't feel "right" to me but I couldn't find any other informaiton on this. The only things I noticed were a badly made site and a "publishing package" I have no intention of trying to get published or anything with this, not even if its a scam but because it's american and I want to try the Australian market first.
However, I'm not overly experienced at picking out scams so thought if other people here could have a look around and say their opinion on it then if this person comes in again, we may save someone from being scammed and if it's not a scam at least people will be able to find information on them easier then I could.
If it's not a scam well then the thread can be deleted or whatever happens when its determined that it's not a scam, but I wanted to go on gut instinct here and find out for sure anyway.
