    Pay-for-display sites are generally a waste of money. See http://www.sfwa.org/for-authors/writ...vices/#Display

    For this particular site, the main concerns are:

    Does the founder have any experience in marketing and promotion beyond Publish America?

    How are readers targeted beyond spammed "press releases"?

    As Uncle Jim might say, YADS = Yet Another Display Site.

    That's all you need to know to run away.

    Indeed. Just don't. There are much better ways to be seen online, for free.
