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.

Queried: 11/13
Rejected with an ad for their services: 11/15

After reading the other comments, I'm happy they passed.

Sent a query and they responded saying they wanted the full MS within 30 days or they would not consider my query. I did not care for the tone of that e-mail so I never sent my ms.
