Beware of the Yellow Stream

There are many things that a publisher seriously in arrears might want to do.  Get a bank loan for example, and pay their authors.  Or close down and return their rights.

Or you could take a leaf from Silver Publishing's playbook and open a new imprint that demands new branding and promotion, and sign on a bunch of new authors.  Lovely yellow website, isn't it?

I just don't understand why any author would choose to publish with a press that they can't guarantee will pay them. There are other publishers of young adult fiction in good standing that these authors can submit to rather than toss their manuscripts down a sinking hole. I don't get it.

Unfortunately, a lot of people don't know that the company is in trouble since few people are speaking out.
