I have received a few concerned emails, along the same lines highlighted in a recent blog post about Lyrical Press. Specifically that on at least one occasion the following clause in the contract has been activated, essentially depriving the author of control of their own manuscript unless they pay a substantial kill fee:
"...the Publisher may have the revision done and charge the cost of such revision against royalties due, or that may become due, the Author, and may display in the revised work, and in advertising, the name of the person, or persons, who revised the work."

Reader Beware: Lyrical Press Inc.
