I don't really like their covers and they say that the bulk of a book's success relies on the author.

The success of your book is highly dependent upon the author’s efforts.

They have a three-year contract, which seems good, and they're "now able to offer advances," which makes it seem like they have been doing well in sales. They also allow authors to pay for/design covers, though they have final say in what the cover looks like.

All in all, maybe okay? I'd give them a year or so before considering.

Site's gone, last book pubbed '15.

Put up a Patreon for "relaunching in 2017 with a focus on charitable contribution", but nothing came of it. Did put out a newsletter in June re: "not quite ready yet".

I recently submitted a story for their new short story collection. They're offering 6 cents a word, which is impressive.
