Idiot

I see Madris De Pasteur of New Concepts Publishing fame hasn’t lost her ability to make friends and influence people:

To roll or not to roll, this is the question—
We’re currently working on designing a new webpage for NCP to be launched early next year. Due to the fact that the unhappy have made a nuisance of themselves reminding us repeatedly to remove their books upon expiration, we’ve inadvertently removed some books by authors who wanted to roll over.

That being the case and also because it could simplify things for us when designing the new page, we want to create a list of people who intend to remain with NCP. Please respond with your intentions to the author liaison address–NOT directly to me–so a list can be compiled and, hopefully, we can eliminate some of the confusion and focus on promoting the career authors and getting their books listed with the distributors, etc.

Due to the difficulty in removing books from listings with our distributors, books that will not be renewing will not be sent to distributors. Also, a reminder–the most effective promotion to build a fan base is frequent releases.

Thanks!
Madris
NCP

Lol, why am I not surprised that those idiots at NCP would mistakenly remove books of the few authors that they have, who are crazy enough to still want to stay with them?

Thanks to you-know-who for the heads up. *g*

    I’m surprised those idiots are still around. I guess the authors who stay with them, haven’t learned there lesson. They should get out early, and not look back.

    How very unprofessional with the statement below, but I do like it how she complains about the authors who have left want there books taken off their website, and shift the blame about why they have to change out their crappy looking 80″s themed website to something up to date.

    She also comes across as not caring who stays and goes at NCP with the DO NOT CONTACT ME BUT THE AUTHOR LIAISON.

    I would think that E-Publishers would want to nurture their writers and do some promotions for them and not just the chosen few there at NCP, instead of driving them out with this statement “””the most effective promotion to build a fan base is frequent releases.”””

    Oh and to blame the removal of author’s books who wanted to remain with them on the unhappy authors, and not the one at the helm actually doing the removing, I guess he didn’t have a list of those unhappy authors and just deleted who ever.

  • [...] Scott has another lovely letter from New Concepts owner and president, Madris De Pasteur. I wonder, like the commenters, why any author would publish with New Concepts. [...]


  • I really want to do a Kanye West thing here, but my brain froze up. Crickey.
