Another new short that's getting great comments. Yeah! I loved one of them. It said: Imagine meeting either your love or your killer...and the choice is yours.

If this last paragraph on this page is any indication, Richele, Lady Luck Publishing has in fact just recently been purchased:


According to a few other place I looked, it appears they were at one time at least taking other genres and I didn't see the name on any of the "bad" lists. 

As for Christopher Hawk - there is a legit author by that name who has self-published his previous works. Also, it isn't necessarily uncommon for an author to own a publishing company (present company included) so that should not necessarily be the red flag. I'd simply say proceed with caution as one should in all things.

Hi everyone.  I know it has been ages since I've been around.  Doing a little of this and a little of that.  Started writing unit studies and for  I still have things on the back burner that I really need to turn the heat up on. Anyway, a friend of mine was contacted by a man who said he purchased Lady Luck Publishing.  He is looking for editors.  She has never edited before...she is a secretary.  They happened to meet in passing on the web.  He wants to hire her to be an editor.  He says he bought the publishing company and wants to gear it toward women...christian books and children's books. He is keeping the publishing rights to all previously published material.  From my search it seems they deal in erotica.  He is also an author himself...Christopher Hawk.  Does this sound shady to anyone else?  I looked up Lady Luck and it seems they sell eBooks and the editors make a large commission while the authors make 25%.  it all sounds odd.  Can anyone advise in any way?  She is unsure what to do.  THANKS!

Haven't been around in a while. To add to the year from hell, my sister battled lung cancer that moved into the brain. We lost her the last day of July and unbelievable depression followed. Finally coming out of my funk and starting to write again. Just entered a new story in the Clever Fiction Weekly Challenge. If you get a chance to read it, I would appreciate it ... and it's open, so anyone who wants to enter, feel free. It's good to be getting back into the game again!
