I posted on the closed Silver forum that I am happy to back up every word I am saying about how Silver have treated me and other authors. Backing it up with evidence, including emails, bank statements etc....
And last night... I got paid...!
*stops dancing* *works out how much it was*
Less than 7% of what I am owed up to an including October Amazon, 2012 (sighs). But hey ho, you can't expect miracles.
I believe I am now paid up to the middle *ish* of May 2012.
An additional and very important note:
In addition I need to make things VERY clear... please feel free to buy as many Silver books as you want, but if you are a RJ Scott reader, please don't buy mine from them. Simply because I will not see a penny from them until at least 2014, possibly 2015. (If Silver are still going by then!).
I don't represent all Silver authors and I never said I did. Some authors are still staying loyal to Silver. There are many stories out there from the different authors. However, some of their stories start with *Last week Silver paid me
(EDIT - this should have read 20%, the authors that were paid received 20% not 7%. I received around the same of what Silver owed me from May-July 2012, the 7% is calculated on what they owe me in total up to the end of October 2012)
You, my readers are all adults and consistently wonderful supportive people. You can make up their own minds about this whole thing. You are the reason I write, you put the heart in my books. I have pulled up my big girl panties and looked for another publisher, I have self published, I will do anything so that I can afford to pay my bills and to be sure I can keep writing. I am so lucky to be in a position where my wonderful readers follow me and where other publishers are happy to take a chance on me. You do know I love you all ... right?
There are so many wonderful new writers that have been pulled in to Silver. To those I offer my support and will help them in any way I can. To them I say: Please email me firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or if you want to appear on my blog.
