Rejection, at least it was fast. Offered me other services for which I'd have to pay. Well, no. But thanks?

Would caution authors. This publisher expects authors to pay for their own outside editorial services, which can cost ~$1,000. If you're paying for edits, you'd be better off self-publishing, so you can keep more than 20% of the profits.

Form Rejection April 12.
Given some of the comments by other writers, I thought Black Rose would offer something. Happy that I didn't have to choose to not go with them... bummed that even they rejected my ms.

I was excited to receive this offer but declined. This publisher has numerous poor reviews on various sites. Sad!
