This is an excerpt from an email message Jill Noble sent out last Tuesday announcing her immediate departure from Noble Romance Publishing. Since then the author’s loop has been torpedoed and there is limited communication from the owner of Noble (who is apparently James Noble, Jill’s brother, and a successful technology businessman). A new loop for authors was privately set up and according to author J. S. Wayne, there appears to be a pattern of delayed royalty payments and reported royalties not matching novel rank.
On Erastes’ blog, authors were told to expect more clarification today. Hopefully the promised communication will be released and authors will be treated fairly.
