I just wanted to say that I’ve made the decision to honor my contracts with Bad Moon Books. I asked Roy some pointed questions that I believe he answered honestly and fairly. Based on that, the fact I’ve already signed the deals, and … other things I’ve learned, I will not be pulling my books. Both Little Graveyard on the Prairie and The Prometheus Syndrome will be released by Bad Moon Books.
I’m sure this won’t be the popular opinion with some people. That’s okay. You have the right to think I’m making a mistake. You have the right to hate me, if you can dare do the exact thing you condemn others for. This is America, after all, and everyone can still think whatever they want.
This shouldn’t need to be said, but for just in case, I’ll say it once: I do not condone hatred toward any group of people. I believe Roy said some things in anger that he realizes he should not have said. It’s an issue he assures me he is working on, and I believe him. Hopefully that will be enough for everyone.
Many thanks to those who commented and/or sent e-mails as I mulled this decision. Your input was much appreciated and carefully considered, even if my decision is not the one you recommended.
