There's Some Trickery Going On

At least that's the way I see it. Anyone that knows me, knows that while I'm somewhat fascinated by e-publishers, I'm also seriously wary of a good many of them. Too often they remind me of snake oil salesmen that come in during the cover of night, promise you the world...for a cost...then just as quick are gone with the morning dew.

Now, no one jump on me for what I'm going to say next, but.....How is it that an epublisher (Dark Eden Press) can post that it's closing its doors forever and have returned the rights to all their authors books, but still SELL those books for the next FOUR months?

I don't know about anyone else, but were I in the shoes of the authors formerly with DEP, I'd not only want them to return my rights, but to stop selling my books!

If I'm way off base, someone let me know. But....*shrugs*....I'm concerned for the authors of DEP and other epubs that have closed their doors recently.

  1. This is so great Viola. You’ll be representing!

    IMRR has become big. Print authors are even flocking to us!

    I am sure that you, Isis, Patricia and Dyanne will make everything go smoothly once there.

    It sounds like one HUGE party and I can’t wait until you guys get back and start posting to the boards all the fun things you’ve done.

    And don’t forget – pics with publishers and authors if possible. LOL!

    Again, as you know I wish I was there, but I’ll be talking to you guys soon.
