Yog's Law: Money flows *towards* the author

***Don't buy books from All Romance eBooks***
7 bit ASCII
Last night/today All Romance eBooks sent out emails to authors and readers notifying them that the site is closing on 31 December. Readers have until then to back up their library. Authors and publishers are being offered 10c on the dollar for the Quarter 4 royalties up until 27 December. *No* royalties will be paid on any sales after then. Some readers with credit are reporting that their credit has been wiped. Readers who pre-ordered had to pay up front on order - that money will not be returned and they won't get the books.

DO NOT BUY MY BOOKS FROM ARE. I will not see the money. Neither will my publisher, who paid for the editing and cover art on my books. Don't buy anyone else's books either. You may not even get the books you've paid for.

Authors - get on there *now* and get your books off, because ARe has continued to sell books at full price, after announcing they're not going to pay the authors what they're owed.

Kudos to those publishers who've already said they'll honour pre-orders directly for people affected by the pre-order thing.

Yes - that's just a very brief summary of the ways in which this is terrible. :-( It's been a very busy day in online romance circles.
