July 30, 2019
Hello from Elizabeth, Anne, and Lynn.
Today’s email contains an update on 2Q royalties as well as previously announced activities. We’ve included contact information for individual topics.
2Q Royalty Statements
This quarter you will be provided with both a summary and a detail report. Shared folders have been set up on Box.com so you will have immediate access to your reports and an archive to reference older reports in the future. Reports can be downloaded and shared from this file. If you have not received a Box.com invitation, please contact Anne Regan. We anticipate depositing all 2Q2019 statements to Box folders on 7/31. Questions about reports, please contact Elizabeth North.
We are in the final steps with the Small Business Administration loan that will bring current all company financial obligations. As of this morning, the SBA’s estimated funding has been moved back to mid-August. We will continue to pay royalties and payments out of cash flow until funding deposits. Contact Elizabeth North with all questions about payments and royalties.
Tipalti Payment Service
Tipalti’s invitation emails have been sent. Tipalti uses two-factor identification for setup. If you don’t have a mobile phone, you can use a landline. The automated system will attempt to send a text first, but will follow up with a voice call to give you your code. If you receive the call but no one is there, or if you have not received an invitation email, please contact Anne Regan.
The three Dreamspinner Publications imprint stores (Dreamspinner Press, Harmony Ink Press, and DSP Publications) will consolidate sales at the dreamspinnerpress.com URL. Consolidation includes shopping, existing reader bookshelves, author portal access, and user sign-in names. All individual store URLs will be redirected to the new live product page, so there is no need to change the URLs in your promo materials.
We are here and willing to discuss the current situation as well as future plans with authors. Our email addresses are below. Until this situation has been completely resolved, we will issue an update every Tuesday.
Elizabeth North, Chief Executive Officer,
Anne Regan, Chief Operations Officer
Lynn West, Publisher and Chief Development Officer
