None at all, but just had to say, totally sounds like they should publish erotica instead of horror.  :smile:

Well, they're not on P&E so that's a good thing.  :biggrin: I agree with Licentia. Looks like they're a genre specific publishing house. I'm assuming you're interested in querying them.

He requested my manuscript just wondering if anyone might have had any knowledge on their response time. And yes, agreed on the name, ha!! :)

Okay, so you subbed to them? I ask because I've been hearing a lot of people say they've been emailed by small publishing houses when it's a scam to get the authors to buy into their publishing 'deals'. The one you're looking at doesn't have packages where you have to pay them, so that's a good sign. :happy:

If by "subbed" you mean submitted it, yes. Yea, from what I've read they're legit.

or maybe one of these:

1) erotic horror

2) horrible erotica
