They sent me a letter saying they were rejecting my novella.  Which would be fine, had I sent them one.

I sent them a short story collection.  

If they cannot tell a short story collection apart from a novella, Houston, we got a problem.  I urge extreme caution in submitting anything to them.

Their website is very poorly designed. See for yourself.

You would think they could afford to hire a half-competent web designer, but apparently not. It emanates cheapness.

 

I agree with the OP, do not submit to them.

Wow, that is a weird website. They don't take email submissions???? So very odd. I would avoid at all costs, especially since they offer "editing services" up front. (Red flag for pub. that will say your book is "good but needs more editing, so now PAY US).
