Should be de-listed. This is not what any author would go looking for, this is a predator to authors. TX address and everything.

Delighted that I got a near immediate request for my manuscript, until I read that Black Rose Writing is a Vanity Press that requires you buy copies of your book. Oh well, the hour of elation thinking someone was actually interested was worth it. I'll be reading the QueryTracker comments section here forward.

Writer Beware describes some very unethical business practices

Received a near immediate rejection with several advertisements for paid services and paid contests, as others have mentioned. Shady.

I wish I'd seen these comments and others before I sent my submission. Would advise a google search and avoiding.

Received a positive result after they requested full manuscript. Offer of acceptance, but unfortunately I had accepted another offer (I actually wrote and told them this, but apparently it did not stop their process). They were very gracious when I again informed them and even offered their acquisition notes, which were quite insightful. I'll try them again with another project.
