More Smoke...

More smoke. This time over Chippewa Publishing. Any confirmation? See here and here (the comments).

...and some fire. "Mardi Gras Publishing is officially closing September 1, 2007", negative are starting to range to matters other than non-payment.

I feel exactly that way about LA. I have to harass them about royalty statements (which I should receive regularly) and payments, and when I get the statement it isn't always complete (I had to inquire further about Fictionwise sales).

Receiving statements and payments is a right, not a privilege. I haven't submitted anything else beyond the two books I already have with them.

You have to be a bit wary when all of the business matters seem to be controlled by one person and not a team with checks and balances. After reading the noted articles however, even a team can be shady though.

Its sad to think that there are only a handful of reliable publishers.
