Hi EVeryone.. Very Happy

Just got an e mail from Publish America, it's planning
of putting thousands of titles into an e book format for
that new Apple's I Pod gadget. What is your opinion on this ?
What do you think we would be paid in royalties.
Do you plan on being apart of this ? I forgot to mention
they ask your permission , me I don't know yet ?


Cheers....Joe..... Very Happy

I got an email, so keep watching, if you are interested. The other day, I was browsing a list of free books from the Barnes & Noble app, and came across one from one of the AW authors who helped shut down AS. Looks like she's in a similar boat to PA.

I haven't responded to the email, so I don't know the details, but if PA gets paid anything, we ought to get royalties. They may be asking if we want to offer it free, though.

Just a quick word on this subject.

I too got the letter from PA about the ebook deal with iPod Apple.

I asked for my digital/electronic rights back from PA, and they returned them to me in April of 2007. So, they don't have the right to publish my books in ebook format with anyone. If they do so it will be a breach of contract.

By the way, if they receive payment for the ebook rights, they should send you royalties on every one of your books that is downloaded. If not, again, they will be in breach of contract, UNLESS you tell them they can publish them as ebooks for free. You may think that this sounds like a good idea to help you promote your books, but to me it's not. The only people who will gain will be PA, and of course the readers. My PA books generate almost no income after nearly 4 years of being published, so why should I let them make money from them when I don't.

DK..

So I guess they can't use the books
without our permission ? How do you
convert your book to an e book ?

Yes, Ann, time was when any mention of PublishAmerica on a message board would bring a flurry of angry folk ranting and raving. The 'net is a place of self-education. Everyone learns eventually that letting off steam on the 'net is not the way to bring about change. Dick explained it all very clearly on the the AW boards. Maybe some listened. They are the wise ones.
