When I read the news on Publishers Marketplace about Kunati Publishing going out of business, I wasn’t sure whether I felt sorrow, joy, or relief. I’m sorry for all the authors affected by this decision, and luckily the editor is returning their rights. Some simply go belly up and the rights get tied up in bankruptcy court.
After further thought, I settled on relief. Relief because this company can’t harm innocent authors. Now that it’s all out in the open, I felt compelled to bring an old post back to the forefront – to serve as a warning to authors to look for the signs. You’ll note that one of Kunati’s owners felt the need to make a rather rude appearance on the comments section and attack his own authors. A real class act all the way ’round.
