I received a warning regarding Ocean’s Mist Press and a question as to its current status. Apparently sometime in 2006, Ocean Mist announced that it would be closing its doors. Then in early 2007, it was announced that there would be new management. No books were released, although the submissions page gives instructions on submissions for 2007 and 2008 releases. There were no releases in 2007. A new book by Essence is up as a May 2008 release. (No links or names here as these posts are not intended to be publicity vehicles).
The complaints against Ocean’s Mist Press are as follows:
- They stopped communicating with their authors.
- They will not remove authors books as asked.
- They are selling books without paying author royalties.
- They have a laundry list of customer complaints.
