The admins and mods here are primarily concerned with protecting authors. Some of their comments may seem harsh at first, but their concern is seeing that authors don't get burned.Well, it seems your lynch mob has everything sewn up nicely. I don't feel this is a positive environment for anyone to participate in. I joined this thread as it was about our company and hoped to offer some insight and encouragement to authors. I am not prepared to have my or my company's integrity ripped to shreds by a bunch of people who don't seem to have an ounce of respect for those who chose to publish via more traditional methods. We're a very open and honest company. If any of you feel that we're not, I'm sorry. I'm not willing to waste my valuable time being put into this disgusting position.
If you wish to engage in some mature dialogue, I'm happy to speak with you. But I will not spend any more time being subject to this nonsense.
Seems to me that you would all do better with your time in promoting your work and getting your sales up rather than trying to beat down people who may be successful in their own endeavors. We don't have to agree, but it would be nice if we all got along.
Bíodh an lá go deas, agus is féidir leis an ghrian solais i gcónaí do ghoirt.
The admins are far from against so called "traditional" (trade) publishing. All of them have been published by respected publishers.
Also I think Emily gave you some good advice that if you want to appeal to authors outside Ireland to include an explanation of your choice of name and its pronunciation on your website.
No one is trying to beat down people, here just trying to get people to prove they can support authors adequately. The mods here take time away from their own promotion to help protect authors.
