I need to write about "small press" "opportunities" like this. You were so right to back out. Suffice it to say if a publisher can't afford to pay for basics like cover design, RUN. They're NOT legit, and they're not doing anything you can't do better for yourself. A small press that can't even buy a cover is not somebody you want to be associated with. A contest that doesn't pay winners but wants you to publish through them? Oh, and they can't pay for the covers or marketing, you'll pay for that too? They belong in jail! Preying on people at a vulnerable time. Now my blood is boiling.
