Always the Fine Print

WiDo Publishing is open for submissions.  I checked them out because they publish mystery fiction.  They also have a new imprint called E.L. Marker.  If your manuscript isn't suited for WiDo they transfer it to the E.L. Marker imprint.  Good deal?  The new imprint will publish your book for the low price of $3977.  Yep, at the bottom of the E. L. Marker imprint page they mention this.  NOT in the submission guidelines.  Watch your backs out there, folks.
