Just asking out of pure curiosity this time, since I just now heard about 'em and can't seem to find any opinions on 'em:
Has anyone had any experience with SphinxBooks?
Apparently they do eBooks. They purport to be a traditional publisher, other than that. They seem well aware of which way the money is supposed to travel.
The red flag for me is on their front page, where they say,It could be that they're referring to their own policy of accepting unagented submissions. But sometimes when I hear this kind of spiel it's code for "we hardly ever write rejection letters."At SphinxBooks, we believe that there are many terrific authors who cannot get published - not because their manuscripts are inadequate, but because they cannot get past the piranha-filled moat that surrounds traditional print publishing companies. Most of the barriers in traditional publishing are capricious and unfair. Epublishing levels the playing field.
So I thought it might be worth asking about. Anyone know anything about 'em?
