Update from Elizabeth, Anne, and Lynn.
Sorry about the delay. Yesterday ended with a family emergency that kept me away from computers. A few informational updates this week.
Dreamspinner Author Group on Yahoo
Yahoo announced that they will be closing Yahoo groups. 90% of the functionality is going away. Over the last two years, interaction on the Dreamspinner Author Group hosted at Yahoo has diminished to a fraction of what it once was, so we decided that closing the group was the best option. We are looking at different options to continue to relay information. We will announce any future groups or forums via email to this group.
Payments are going out every day based on sales through our website and quarterly payments coming in at the end of this month.
Please remember that we are issuing payments to 1200 authors. When we send a set of payments, it isn’t to ALL authors. We are prioritizing payments that have been due the longest.
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.
We have started an archive of updates for authors having trouble receiving the emails. We will also share questions from authors and readers we feel would be helpful. You can even put your address in to receive emails when it updates.
Written communication can never take the place of face to face, but Elizabeth happily uses Skype and will schedule a chat with anyone who wishes to talk with her. Her ID on Skype is dsp_elizabeth. Connect with her by email to schedule a chat.
Don’t want to be face to face? Use the ASK QUESTION option on the update website. Remember if you ask a question anonymously, we can’t respond directly.
