RIP Red Rose Publishing

So the word is that the outage of Red Rose Publishing's website is now permanent. Given the ongoing problems I just hope it will be wound up tidily. Their authors have only just been notified, so there is not much more to say about it right now.  I will post any updates I receive, or feel free to comment if you have anything to share.

Keeping in Mind...

In a post-Slash world I would have expected that this phrase would have died out by now:

"Keeping in mind that this volume is targeted at women, the editor seeks mainly hetero stories, but will consider bisexual or lesbian encounters and polyamorous relationships."

If you don't want the gay male stories that is your call, but it has nothing to do with 'keeping in mind' the general female-ness of the readership IMHO.
