This is really interesting. Of course, these days with the consolidation of distributors, it's much harder to build a readership locally or regionally that can be expanded outward into national sales, but they'll sure be interesting to watch and it'll be great news if they succeed in doing this. Even if they don't make the PR aspect work all that well, they certainly come to the table with strong agenting reputations and lots of top publishing contacts.
