I had a very grand surprise to awaken to this morning!!
All sleepy-eyed and in the mood to pull the blanket over my head and snooze for another hour, I rolled the bed and, I usually do -- check my email. Well, imagine to my surprise when I spy an e-mail from Amazon Publishing/Montlake. The beautiful email was announcing that they had done a bank transfer of the money that Dorchester Publishing has owed me for nearly two years. Amazon bought the rights to my Sisters of Colford Hall™ series, and had promised me, as well as the other Dorchester authors signing with them, that they would honor the money owed by Dorchester before they went out of business.
I simply cannot thank Amazon Publishing/Montlake enough for stepping in and saving the Dorchester authors. It's been too long with nothing but bad news for these authors, so it amazing to see Amazon's caring and prompt handling.
