    I received an email from them asking permission to republish my books. This is a non-starter (I don't have books) but who are these guys?

    I'm downright sure they are a scam, but they're offering POD, distribution, review services and all that jazz, and offering to pay royalties wht's the up'n'up?

    They have been contacting a lot of authors. Before you consider doing any business with them, read this article about their parent company:
    Writer Beware®: The Blog: Victoria Strauss -- VDM Verlag Dr. Mueller

    They are one of the imprints of the house under discussion. I don't think they are a scam, but as an author mill they do not have to be a scam to be a very bad deal you are best to avoid.
