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.
Well shit. That's disappointing to hear

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.

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

This is not accepted at this site. In terms of slaps on the wrist each has a mystically value. The copyright infringement slap is almost a temp ban all by itself. The site takes this kind of issue that seriously.

Angel of Blood All gone. Got to wait for the arbitrary date BL will set before it comes on paperback sale/ebook release or comes up on the Vault
