For those of you who have worked with MeeGenius, has it been a worthwhile experience? Would you do it again? Thanks!

Well they used to have an author portal where you could lay out your books to submit to them.  But then they suddenly closed that and I haven't looked back.  I don't even know how to sub to them.  Are they open?

I thought they only looked at slush stories during their annual contest.

Thanks, Katherine. I don't think their next contest has started yet. I was reviewing the guidelines on their site, and I was curious about what others had experienced. Maybe they won't be having one this year? I guess I was just presuming they would.

I published my book The Bedtime Knight with them after entering it in their annual contest. My story didn't make the finals of the contest (the voting is based on how many "likes" you get and you need facebook to vote), but they still offered me a contract. Overall I was pleased working with them. I'll PM you!

It looks as if they are expanding as well. Not that this is extremely new news, but they are truly a force in digital media.
