Post Dropping my publisher
After a year wasted, I'm sending my publisher on their way.

Lessons learned: they are NOT all the same. I went with a smaller publisher run by an independent writer. She had more than a dozen authors and I thought it would be a great match.

Not so much. First of all: ZERO investment in her authors. No advertising, no anything. Her total advice had to do with free stuff that you could do on your own. I don't need a publisher for that.

Before I met her, I was selling hundreds per month and, since, 25 copies in a year, and not a single royalty payment on top of that.

There was a rider in the agreement which essentially said, "If I don't pay you in six months, then the agreement is void." So I'm sending out the notice that I'm terminating the agreement on Monday

I know how this is, I once published with PublishAmerica. It was a living hell and finally after four years I was able to get out of my contract. You were right about one thing, why have the "professionals" tell you about free stuff when it's stuff you can figure out and do on your own?

Do what's best for you. I never pursued a publisher, and chose to do everything myself in order to avoid the problems that you've dealt with.
