Poetic Acceptance, my chapbook, has apparently been put out of print as of today by way of the unlawful termination of my contract by my publisher Shaela Montague Phillips at Meeting of the Minds Publications/Chapbook Enterprises. The "buy it now" button has been removed from the Chapbook Enterprises webpage despite the fact that our contract stated that in order for it
"to be considered out of print, no copies will have sold for a twelve month period, or the request shall be made in writing and agreed upon by both parties."
My book is listed as
"not currently being sold"(click the above screen shot for a good view of that fact) after only 6 months of availability. There has been no written request or mutual agreement to terminate said contract, nor has there been a written agreement to put Poetic Acceptance out of print.
Also, for the record, despite her promises over the last 24 hours, I've not yet received any payment of the royalties which I was supposed to have received in July of this year. I've even provided her with my Paypal information in order to expedite and simplify that process.
My advice to anyone considering a contract with this company: Don't, unless of course you're looking to begin your publication with an education in what not to do.
