I'm not getting any matches on this publisher in search on Absolute Write. Anyone familiar with them? They're in the UK. Thanks.

Great coffee
Looks to me like a self-publishing enterprise.

Great, they looked like a good horror small publisher. Trying to find out other writers' experience with them.

It seems they have changed their business structure recently. Anyone have any experience with them or any thoughts on the 50% royalty structure?

Bumping because I'm thinking about subbing to one of their anthos. Anybody have any experience with them?

Yeah, that's the one I'm thinking about subbing to. It looks good, just trying to do my due diligence . . .

I subbed a short to their Haunted Futures anthology in early Feb. No response yet, and the summer (their proposed generic deadline) is almost over. Has anyone who may have subbed heard anything?

They've opened non-agented subs for novels (Sept. 15 - Dec. 31) via Submittable.

I got the "R" today for my short sub for the anthology. They got way more subs than they anticipated, so the response time factor is skewed. If you haven't heard anything yet, be patient--and good luck!

I've had two interactions with them. One, I emailed to see if I could submit a story for an anthology that fell just short of their minimum word count. I received a quick reply that I could but it would be a hard sell. The second was a kind, personalized rejection for the same short story. Based on these two interactions, I'd sub to them again.

In Oct '17, announced intent to launch four new imprints. In Nov, novels on hiatus because they weren't selling. Anthologies to continue.
