XOXO Publishing, Gina Cianfarani CEO.
This epublisher lists romance and erotica as genres of interest.
The red flags, let me count them.
1) P&E: "31 Aug 09 - XoXo Publishing, Inc.: Not recommended. Poor contract. A publisher."
2) Video and music auto-plays on the website. That always bugs me.
3) A $4.95 shipping and handling charge for an ebook?!
4) The submission page states: "I certify that I have the right to submit the texts, manuscripts, photo's, artwork and materials that I am submitting to XoXo Publishing. This submission signifies agreement to the above and that I agree to grant an exclusive, royalty-free, irrevocable, transferable, perpetual license to publicly display my submission..."
XOXO Publishing: music that pains, submissions that strain
AP Miller AKA Patti Rebmann Apparently Has A New Job… a.k.a. "Anonymous"?)
"I received an email the other day informing me that AP Miller AKA Patti Rebmann has got a new job. Apparently she’s the acquisitions editor at the soon-to-be-opened (slightly dodgy looking) XoXo Publishing."
