Paying Authors Their Dues Really Should Be A Given...
Oh feeling much better now, TTG even persuaded me that going for a walk in the park was a good idea. He was right.
Anyway, apparently Desiree Erotique hasn’t been paid any royalties for her book for several months. The guilty ones this time, are Chippewa Publishing.
Chippewa Publishing/Lady Aibell owner, Rebecca Pack, has been sent my notice of my displeasure at not being paid royalties for my story, Nocturnique.
This situation has been going on for several months and before this I was also concerned with royalty statements which contradicted with the language of my contract; contradictions acknowledged by Ms. Packs but never remedied.
I have thus removed purchase links at my website for Nocturnique. The contract for this story ends September 2007 and I have also notified Ms. Pack that I will not renew the contract.
Hmmm…I’d avoid them like the plague in any case
I also got the following e-mail about Mardi Gras Publishing:
“I've heard rumors about Mardis Gras publishing's owner being MIA for the past month. Sounds like Venus Press all over again. I didn't want to post publicly because it's not my publisher and just a rumor, but there it is.”
Smoke and fire, people, smoke and fire. Anybody know any different, you’re welcomed to e-mail me.
By the way, don't these people know that music on a 'professional website' is a bit, ya know... irritating?
