It's unfortunate that my enthusiasm was tempered and then destroyed, by unsavory business practices. I'm sorry for going off on a tangent, but I will say this. How we deal with one another, is extremely important. The uplift of any people, depends on that people's economic advancement. If we can't work for one another, or be wage payers to our own community, then we are doomed.
This is so very sad but true as well Caleb. But all is not lost. I am sure you can make a comeback with your new titles. In fact I just ordered Two Thin Dimes from Amazon and I'm looking forward to reading your unadulterated novel.
One solution to helping breakdown these unsavory practices is for writers who have had horrible experiences like yours to tell it LOUDLY and OFTEN in any venue you can.
Another is for those of us who are fortunate enough to land legitimate contracts with legitimate agents, editors, and publishers to give a hand up in ways that we can and share whatever information that we have garnered along the way with those aspiring to break in. Maybe if we all do what we can more writers can truly realize their dreams of becoming authors without falling into predatory traps of others who only think of themselves.
I applaud your bravery in speaking out and I'm praying for you and your family!
