    Thought I would fill in a few of your blanks.

    A: We also have the Quake line for young readers, Echelon Shorts for short stories and novellas, and Explorations for speculative fiction.

    B: We do supply ISBN numbers for each of the published works, both for print and eBook.

    C:1. Advances: We no longer offer advances.
    2. Royalties: We do pay royalties. (% of retail on print and % of net on eBook)
    3. Copyrights granted: We put a notice of copyright, but author is required to apply for official copyright in their own name.
    4. Length of Contract: Typically four years from date of publication.

    E: We do not generally use the Facebook PAGE at this time. We do have an active account for general info (4467 friends). Once we hit our 5000 friends we will utilize the PAGE.

    Thanks for the inclusion.
