Peoples, and others, I received a request from a site called ShadowyTales asking me to become an author for them. Below is my reply to them:
I love the note, especially since this is the SECOND email I have from you on this. I looked at the site, and I doubt it will do much for me, especially since I couldn't readily find any information on royalty payments rates for anything published by you, nor did I like the fact it seems the only way to publish via you is to you your program to write the story instead of just loading a completed and validated e-pub, pdf, or html documents.
Since I usually write 50,000 words or more per story and already have over 3,000,000 words in print via Lulu and Stories On-line, I've no interest in having to try and stuff the stories into your on-line program.
So, thanks, but no thanks.
The site almost looks like a copy of other sites I've seen that have fallen by the wayside, and I don't like the fact they want people to put stories on their site, even sell books, but I couldn't find anything to say how much they pay you.
Just thought to let you know so you don't have to waste your time on it if they also contact you.
