This is where there used to be a New Concepts Publishing yahoogroup for readers. This is where they used to link to it (see the bottom of the page). It seems a few authors, in the process of leaving either by choice or summary deletion, had a few things to say. I assume that the PTB at NCP found it easier to delete the group than address the problems (other than with the usual counter-accusations).
In the past I have noted how the ability of an e-publishers to sell books correlates closely with the number of members in their yahoogroup for readers. So the jettisoning of this yahoogroup combined with the noticeable reduction in book releases, distinct absence of releases by non-owners and appearance of short formats not previously allowed by their submission guidelines? I just wonder how long they can go on.
Edited to add: The owners seem to be keeping busy.
