Quoth Triceretops: They are/still a pure author mill, IMO. I have the contract, I know. This is the biggest problem with e-publishers going hog-wild, trying to sign as many authors as possible in such a short time. The K-Mart mentality--if we can't get it in quality, we'll make up for it in quantity. Three books in two years is nuts. Especially if she's a known quantity, with backlist titles out there. It shows that Eternal is doing absolutely nothing to promo these books. Why should they? Let the authors spam the world and bring in the dough.
Hold it. That's strange. As we all know, the commonest reason a reader buys a book is because they've read and enjoyed another book by the same author. In this case, the author has two backlist titles sitting right next to the Eternal Press title. The two backlist titles are selling, but the EP title isn't?

That's very odd indeed.
