So I waited out this thing with my publisher as far as I'm willing to risk it.
That's actually why I didn't return to blogging last week as promised. I was staring at my computer screen, growing my ulcer, screwing up my happy hormones... and checking my e-mails like an obsessive compulsive.
And after a week, no reply from my publisher on something so serious it makes me nauseous just to think about.
So... I'm taking action. I'm actively screening IP attorneys, so if you know any good ones, let me know.
What's pushing me to this? Well. That's a nice, long story deserving of a nice long post. Which I will write and publish when 1) I've gotten the legal advice I need and 2) when it's not April, because really, I want as many people out there as possible to give me their full attention. To help them learn from this horrible experience I'm going through with my publishing house.
And yes. It is horrible. It's destructive, and it's currently sucking my soul, more than being sick and being exhausted combined.
I will let something good come out of this. Even if the good ends up being for someone else's benefit.
And for those of you who pray:
1) Please pray I get the right person to act as my legal representation.
2) And pray that this ends up being a clean cut for me.
