First, I feel awful for not replying to all the comments on my last post, but time online has been somewhat limited of late. The kids leave on Thursday morning, and things should get back to normal by then.
I’m taking the time to come online now, though to let you all know that Kellie has paid me my first quarter royalty via PayPal. I’m happy about that. However, as of this point, she hasn’t even been in contact with Tina Anderson, and as far as I know, that’s also true of the other Iris authors. Until that’s resolved, I can’t in conscience support the purchase of Iris books, including mine.
ETA: Kellie has updated on the Iris blog. I’m glad she’s finally come out with it, but I really think the snarky tone she’s taken about Tina is uncalled for. Personal dislike does not excuse a person from the standards of good business behavior, and that includes communicating regularly with one’s business associates, whether you owe them money or not.
Also, working at a public law library, I know more than one attorney in sole practice who uses Hotmail, Yahoo, and yes, Gmail as email providers. I have no idea whether Tina’s rep is a lawyer or not, but you can’t judge someone’s professional status by their email.
