Hi, I'm new to this board. Last year I published my novel, The Silver Wheel, with Heliographica Press. Yes, they are POD, I know I was a jerk. I had no help in proofing or editting from them. But they did place my novel on Amazon.com and Barnes and Nobles.com. as they promised. They also have me on their own website. I know that people have bought my book since publication in September of '04. Several friends ordered it from book stores and online. I see that on Amazon.com some book dealers are reselling it, which means they must have bought it. Also, one woman in NH ordered it from their website and never got it, although they charged her credit card. They did not answer her email. I wound up selling her one of my authors' copies.
I have not received any tally of how many books I have sold, nor have I gotten a royalty report or check. I emailed the editor and he said that they do not send out sales tallies. Next September I plan on taking back my rights when the contract expires but in the meantime, what else can I do?
