Posted in: Venus Press is alive, Venus Press Is Dead

…Is Venus Press really trying to relaunch?

Surely it would have been a better idea to open up under a different name, with the current name being so tainted and all?

Thanks to KS for the heads up.


  • Tainted? Sorry, I don’t know the background.

    Tainted? Sorry, I don’t know the background

    And thus why relaunching won’t hurt them. Many people don’t remember how the owner deserted the company…and their authors.

    I find this page really interesting: http://venuspress.com/Employment.htm. Anyone remember if the positions were such when they closed? The grammar is rather strange, much like I’d think a non-native English speaker would have.

    I wonder if the old owner sold the company, because I can’t imagine she’d truly think she’d succeed now after falling off the face of the earth and leaving the poor authors and staff in such a lurch 2 years ago.

    The Venus Press author loop and reader loop on Yahoo were never deleted after they went under. Pretty convenient that they already have a reader group.


  • File this under… THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HMMMM….

    The marketing director must know how to use a phone, y’all. High standards with this one, obviously. Darn, there goes my chance to snag a marketing position, I never did learn how to work those newfangled phone contraptions.


  • I counted FIVE major grammar/wrong word choices on this page…and I wasn’t even looking for them very closely.

    Anyone who submits to this place is asking for trouble, IMO.

    Hmmm. Verra odd sounding employment page. Lots of typos, or created by someone not overly familiar with English.

    Also, I wonder how many of those places listed under “Friends of Venus Press” still wish to be listed there. Interesting.


  • […] Looks like Deborah (Taylor) Lynne (The Dragon Laird) is gearing up to reopen Venus Press. Yep, that’s right, Venus Press. Unbelievable. Courtesy of Karen Knows…ALL […]

    I was getting ready to submit a book to Romance Design. When you copy their submission link…it comes up Venus Press. Thank goodness I found your discussion and remembered it before I hit the send key!
