Within the past few months and over the year, I have received a few "awards" or "honorable mentions" which still lead me to believe that I was getting noticed in the poetry world. But with the somewhat constant postcards being sent, saying that they've reviewed my work and would love to publish me and all I have to do is send in my work, less than 21 lines, typed, and all I have to do is send it in to said address. Of course I have to pay for the book as well, which is only a mere 15-20 dollars, unless you wish to add a biography, photos, dedications, or extra poems, then you must pay more.
I've come to the point that I no longer submit to said address and buy the book. I don't think I'm really getting noticed in the world through such a small publishing company as it is, and with the constant "awards" and "mentions" I would expect by now a bigger company would come across my work.
They make you believe you are getting your name out in the world, but really, they're just money hungry scheming people.
