The new CEO of Novel Romance is, apparently, Jean Gombart (who seems to have no publishing experience).
The pattern of non-response to most author communications continues. Tax documents have not been sent. Royalties seems to still be outstanding (?). Rights are not being reverted to author who are dissatisfied or consider their contract to have been breached.
But Noble has made at least some of the outstanding payments to authors.
Nevertheless the general situation still seems pretty dire with some authors requesting a boycott.
In my opinion the remains 'not recommended'.
