First, this looks like a scam. Second, since I use a pen name and do not publish my personal info, like email address, how did they get my email address?
As with most spam, they probably just used the shotgun approach, and sent it out to a lot of people who might be authors, as opposed to sending it out to people who are definitely authors.
It doesn't really cost any more to send it to a million people, as opposed to a thousand. So chances are, they sent it to a million people, and you just happen to be one of the thousand for whom it seemed relevant.
For example, they obviously don't know whether or not you are already published anywhere, so they try to cover all the bases.
Of course, I feel a little bit left out, because I wasn't one of the million people who got it.
Just for fun, you should Google your own e-mail address and see whether it's possibly found anywhere on a page about writing, authors, etc.
Chances are, it's probably not exactly a "scam". They probably do provide the services they claim to provide. But they don't really claim that they're going to do very much. So for $99 or whatever they charge, I'm sure that they'll cheerfully provide the $1 in value that they promise.
No, definitely not a scam. I am sorry you had this impression.
My name is Drummond and I work for Publishers’ Desk. We have been working in the publishing industry for 4 years, mainly for the Spanish language and Portuguese language markets. I am not here to promote our service, but I must say we are a serious team with a successful and honest history.
Actually I am here to apologize. We recenty sent some presentation messages – not many, and yes, to real authors – and we then realized some of them were sent without an opt-out link. We apologize for this inconvenience.
We will not monitor this forum, so if anyone here needs to talk to me, please use my name at publishersdesk.com.
Best regards to all.
