Got this email last night:
I hope I have the right email for Karen Knows Best. I have a complaint and wish to let others know not to submit to Mundania Press. I was an author with Hard Shell Word Factory who Mundaia Press bought out in the fall of 2009. To date, I have seen only the 4th quarter 2009, 3rd and 4th quarter 2010 royalty reports. Nothing for the 1st and 2nd quarter 2010 or 1st quarter 2011. Mundania has an authors loop but regardless of how many authors post emails regarding royalties and payments, all we ever get in return from publisher Daniel Weitz is “we’re working on it.” They also have an online ticket submission via private email with the same results. Zip, zilch, nada in the way of answers.
This has gotten to the point of ridiculous and I would like to alert authors not to submit to them for fear of the same results. I hope you can help me get the word out. I have also alerted Allison Kelly at RWA National to the situtation.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration of my letter. Please feel free to contact me should you need further information.
Mundania Press….Who are they again? Are they related to that other scummy e-pub – Phaze Books?
Anybody got any more info?
