HI,

I sent a query and three chapters to Austin Macauley Publishers. They responded and asked to see the full MS. I sent the query via email, but received the MS request by snail mail, is this unusual? Has anyone had any dealings with this publisher? Should I be concerned?

Thanks

Than you for your reply. It seems there is no doubt that they are a vanity publisher dressed up as traditional. I guess now I can expect a letter asking for money. Very disappointing.

Sorry, but it's always better to know these things.  Here's hoping your future requests are all great!
