Immature stuff. Ultra-commercial, ultra low-concept.

"We DO NOT accept, lbgtq+, spiritual outside of Christianity, adult romance, Salacious, negative, and R-rated material will not be considered."

It isn't immediately obvious that this is a Christian publisher. They do not accept on-page sex, gay or trans characters (which they refer to as "alternative lifestyles), or "taking the Lord's name in vain."

Wish there were a way to filter these out when I'm looking for a home for my rampantly gay space opera.

They stated that they do not take memoirs. Also, gave me tips for improving my query.

Sent a query 02/15/15. Memoir, Single in the CIA.

Received rejection 03/23.
Your manuscript sounds like it would fit better under the genres of either New Adult or Romantic Thriller. At 44,000 words, it is a bit short for either genre.
You’ve also posted excerpts on your website. While we have taken on previously published material, we are currently looking for fresh material. If you’ve already designed a cover, you might want to look into self-publishing this title if you do not find a publisher.
We wish you much success on your author journey.

Um, so much for establishing a platform???

Tamarah3, Fantastic! I wish my manuscript fit what they are looking for. They seem like a great publisher!

I queried them last August or so. Now it's January, and we are discussing a contract for my non-fiction book.
