Read this at Smart Bitches, and draw your own conclusions.
I read one post that said it was documented that authors had to pay something like 35 cents per book that was put up on the Mardi Gras website.
Yeah, you read that right. I mean, WTF? If this is true, if this is documented, I wonder if those authors had any recourse. Was this something stated in their contracts in fine print, or was it just sort of slipped in, without anyone finding out?
Without anyone finding out, apparently, except near the end.
My sympathies go out to those authors who have been or will soon be stiffed.
