Hi all!

 

Does anyone have any info on them? I've been persuing their thread on AbsoluteWrite and was wondering if any of you have experience with them as well.

 

I queried them the other day and received a full request today. While I'm excited, I'm also a bit hesistant due to some of the things I've read about them on AbsoluteWrite.

  • Publishing Experience:I'm published under a pseudonym in the LGBT genre, with a number of anthologies to my credit, as well as an upcoming novel, three novellas, and more anthology contributions. I'm working on getting agent representation / publisher acceptance in the paranormal fantasy genre as I write novels under my main name for that genre. Additionally, I'm a media reviewer for three blogs and have published reviews/articles/meta for those.

A member of my writing group had a book come out from them in April. Thus far, from what I've heard from her and seen in terms of marketing, they've been really great. I will probably be pitching to them for one of my books that doesn't fit into the genres of my regular publishers.

 

A full read doesn't mean you have to sign the contract. I'd send it and see what happens. If you get an offer and decide you want to go with someone else, or don't like the contract, you can always say no.

Thanks, that's good advice! It's always helpful to hear about author's experiences with small presses.

There's a member on this site under the name jadah who signed with them and has a book forthcoming from them in April. :smile: She might be willing to give you her experience with them, too.

I know two people who have signed with them, and both have a good experience.

Following Publisher's Marketplace deals, I sometimes see some very reputable agents selling their clients work to Curiosity Quills. While I can't say this for sure, but I get the impression it is not the agents first choice of publishers they go to, but CQ is considered a viable outlet.
