But things hit a new low when someone representing themselves as Red Rose staff posted comments tot he author discussion group including:
"Vultures, know that term?"
"My mother works for IRS and my father works with the FBI. My husband is a Sherriff..."
While Wendi (the owner) writes: "There will be no request of rights given back for the next 3 to 6 months."
These messages are of course unavailable to authors removed from the publisher list due to their persistence in asking for their royalties and/or tax forms.
Under these circumstances I would suggest that most publishers would benefit more from letting the disaffected authors go than from locking them in.
