New ebook publisher it looks like, who sent me a full request for my #AdPit. I couldn't find a thread here on AW about them so thought I would start one. I don't think I'll be submitting to them however, because they appear to be an ebook publisher only looking for sort of porny stories up to 60k words in length, and I stopped writing that stuff about a decade ago. (it was a phase).

Oh, wow, I didn't even notice that! Eeek! I wonder how R.B Michaels feel about that.

Uhg, I fell for this. They provide a line editor and a content editor and a cover artists, but once the editing process is done, it's like pulling teeth to get a response to an email. I've had my novel published through midnight frost for over a year and have only seen one quarterly earnings report and have yet to see a penny in royalties. I know someone else published through them who had to fight for a month to get her name on the website and amazon to be the same as the cover of her book.

I'd like to know who runs the place since there isn't any information that I could find on the website.

I am sure I have heard that name in publishing somewhere else, but I can't place it now. I could be wrong.

Yes, the name rang a bell with me too. Scarlet Scribe Edits! Ooh, it's all coming back to me now.

My book came out in December with them and I have not seen a royalty check or quarterly earnings report either. My name and book is also not on their site (Midnight Frost Books). I think they are non-responsive to emails because there is no separate email for current clients from the query email. Mary, I'm sending you a pm.

*Update - I sent out an email to the owner's personal email and received my royalties that night.
