Geetings to you,
My name is Sophia and I represent DIP Publishing House. I would like to discuss a potential publishing opportunity with you. This opportunity is not for Self-Publishing, although our company currently offers those services.
We are in search of a select group of Authors for a newly approved project called P.O.W.E.R... DIP Publishing has recently introduced a new and innovated way to publish called “Partnership-Publishing.” This traditional style of publishing was designed to give Authors with “potential” the opportunity to publish traditionally and receive the full backing of a publisher.
Authors selected are to complete a list of PBRs (Pre-Block Requirements) and shall be published over the next 3 to 6 months. Marketing and promotions will be handled under a budget set specifically for this program. For more information, feel free to respond to my email here or email my boss Argus at: email@example.com
I hope to hear back from you soon!

Yep. Marj McRae (I think) got it too. Best ignored. Doubtless a scam. And if genuine, it's against Autho's rules to tout for commercial business. Posted: 15/07/2011 17:04:57

They've probably had the "report abuse" button played on them already. I imagine it's only a matter of time before they disappear. Posted: 15/07/2011 17:05:47

Yeah - I got it too. They do do a self-pub/ partnering kind of thing, so they are just soliciting anyone and everyone from Autho. At least, that's what I think they're doing. Posted: 15/07/2011 17:10:16
if they'd said a single thing about my book, i might have thought twice. Posted: 15/07/2011 17:18:20

Yes, and anyone who writes innovated instead of innovative wouldn't get any business from me! Posted: 15/07/2011 17:53:59

Their name is now "Name Failed Moderation"
That's usually the last step before someone goes *POOF* Posted: 15/07/2011 18:40:05
