With Lori James of All Romance eBooks closing her company in a HUGE breach of contract, not to mention trust, good faith, and obviously some not-so-special business practices, lots of incredible information is coming to light.
For the interested, of which I am one because she's stealing money from me, below are some links to articles by people who know a lot more about it than me.
I wonder how many more blows the industry can absorb and remain viable. Every remaining ebook publisher will be impacted by this. Thousands and thousands of dollars will not be going to authors, and publishers, by this breach of faith.
Celina Summers on Blog Critics - very detailed
Smart Bitches Trashy Books
Karen Knows Best
Mark O Randazza - a bit off topic but I found it both enlightening and wildly funny
Romance Writers of America (RWA) - typical response of words that mean very little
As of yet, Writer Beware hasn't weighed in. I trust what Victoria Strauss posts so I'm curious to see what she says. Check her out any day for insightful information.
Be sure to read the comments section at these blogs. They contain additional information from varied authors.
I'm betting Lori James and Co. certainly do have "a path forward" all mapped out, all of it on other people's money. Remember that phrase - "a path forward." I think it says it all about Lori James. Some of you will know exactly what I mean.
