Regrettably, my initial post about my publisher’s legal issues was very emotion-driven and one-sided. Of course, my relationship with Cantarabooks has been and remains cordial, but I decided today that I should try and contact John Edward Gill to see if I could get the other side of the story out of him. After all, his web site is that of a serious person and not one who should seem absurdly vindictive or frivolous. And it seems like it should be easy enough to get in touch with him.
So I sent him an email, and we’ll see what happens.
In the interest of full disclosure, this is the message I just sent him.
I’ve come to understand that you are undergoing some legal complaint against Cantara Christopher and/or her publishing company Cantarabooks. I am also a Cantarabooks author, and although my interactions with the company have been professional and on the up and up, so far as I can tell, I wondered what the nature of your complaint is and if it is something other authors represented by their imprint might need to be concerned about.
