Newish Epress

New: Rebel ePublisher founded by Joan De La Hay
"We don't accept any pornography, works promoting hatred of any kind, violence or profanity not pertinent to the story line. In other words if we find it offensive we will not accept it. We're also not looking for fan fiction or erotica."
(Yet another submission guideline suggesting one needs to be psychic about what will offend the editor).

...not to be confused with Holly Lisle's Rebel Tales e-zine.
(You also have to know exactly what Ms. Lisle likes and dislikes, but it has nothing to do with sexual content and is very carefully spelled out.)

(We seriously need a few more names for these things, next it with be Forbidden Rebellion epress and the Rebel Romance ezine....).

Uh-oh, this jumped out of the guidelines at me: "If you don't know anyone who can help you with the editing, have a look at our About Us page. You are more than welcome to contact one of our freelance editors..."

Would be handy if one of their freelance editors had taken a look over the submission guidelines too.

"Your antagonists must is some way stand as obstacles against your protagonists..."

There's a glaring spelling boo-boo on the excerpt page for The Gates of Hell. Something else that makes me go "Hmmm" deals with their Advice for Writers page, specifically where they're advising authors to join or start their own writing group, and go on to suggest joining a yahoo on-line writing group. While there's nothing wrong with taking a professional writing course, I have to wonder if wannabe authors get much out of courses where the only instructors are other writers in the same boat?
