The latest newsletter from Coffee Time Romance includes this announcement:
"Reader's Retreat ... The primary goal of New Concepts Publishing, from it's inception, was to bring high quality fiction to book lovers. By offering our authors generous royalty percentages and creative freedom, we've not only attracted many fine authors, but can offer work 'written from the heart', fresh, excitingly different stories stringent guidelines would not allow."
In the reader's retreat forum a first post awaits: "Hello and welcome to all of our guests authors from New Concepts. Don't feel shy, just step up and start bragging." I wonder what New Concepts will be bragging about exactly. Having one of the poorest reputations in the industry today?
