This is okay, there is even a trade forum if you have multiple books your looking to dispose of.

Maybe authors should be paid for word count as well as sales. Might reduce the number of short stories ;)
99% certain he does. Royalties are percentage based off sales.

If they're the Stephin Kings of their publishing house then of course they do. BL is small and really only a handful of writers are what's keeping the whole thing afloat and bringing in new fans. ADB is the Mick Jagger of BL.

So what we're basically trying to work out is if ADB burst into head office with his storm bolter and NL helmet on and held everyone hostage until they agreed that what would really make his new book sell even better was a magnetic strip up the side.

Anyone else read this yet?

I was holding off reading this as a treat, ADB once again writing about my favourite SM chapter fighting in one of the greatest battles of the 40k universe. Imagine my dismay to find that I am struggling to finish even so short a novella. It's fucking dreadful. If I read it without knowing the writer, ADB would be the last author I would guess wrote it. It harks back more to the later dross of the Ragnar series than the excellence of The Emperor's Gift.

I'm just over half way through. Someone please tell me it's worth continuing.
