"My work may be garbage but it's good garbage." Mickey Spillane

General updates


We thought we had the copy of Symphony for the Forgotten straightened out, but I just got another notice from LSI that there are problems we need to correct with the cover.


Tim Willard just tossed Mother Damnation back at me.  That’s the new version we are collaborating on.  I will be jumping onto that one as soon as I get the revisions done on If Truth Dies.

Truth  just passed the 100k mark.


I got my 1099-misc from Renebooks yesterday and they are claiming that they paid me $1089. in royalties last year for the two quarterly periods that they had my books on sale before I pulled them.  My records show that I only received $488.  So far they are not returning my phone calls.

    I want to apologize for this morning. I had a seizure @ 11:20 and Dan had to help me to bed. I didn’t intend to leave anything hanging. I am sorry if I screwed things up.

    BTW, is Sovay OK? She left earlier than I did & I never heard if she was OK or her computer was just acting up.

    I read of your renebooks matters with great interest 🙂

    To offer info in exchange, if you’re having problems getting that first book or two into LSI, particularly with covers, maybe try out the folks at the Yahoo POD Group–

    as they can be quite helpful, particularly with higher-end covers than some of us (me) use.

    (Not spamming, but worth a lurk… and a good place to visit now and again.)

    The problem with the cover was actually on my end. The directions are pretty self-explanatory, but I left a “note” to myself on the whitespace of the worksheet, and forgot to delete it before I sent it in (notes and objects left on the “workspace” aren’t present in PDF runs) and they just wanted to make sure that it wasn’t text I intended on having on the cover.

    It was straightened out in like 30 seconds.
