I do. Or did. My contract was terminated over the weekend and I've sold my book to another publisher. Details pending.

I had four offers ranging from enthusiastic amateurs to pretty well known ePubs. I decided on the latter.

Let me correct. I have four offers. I have picked one but it isn't a done deal yet.

I am suprised. I thought you liked printed books and bookstores.
Do you get large advances or what?

Any publisher that fails is a loss to all authors.

I love bookstores and printed books. But I also know novellas are a pretty hard sell in those venues so that's that.

Do I get large advances? I get compensated fairly considering the size of the work and the venue it's appearing in.
