Permission to forward
RWA received the following notice from Harlequin on Oct. 26.
Effective Monday, November 5, 2012, Harlequin will be able to issue royalty statements to authors on a quarterly royalty schedule. All authors new to Harlequin will automatically be placed on our quarterly royalty schedule. All authors who already have an agreement with Harlequin will be asked to choose between keeping her existing semi-annual schedule or moving to the new quarterly schedule when she is offered a new agreement with us. Here is our new quarterly schedule:
We ask that you advise your membership of this change including how they may contact us to discuss concerns or request participation.
For authors not entering into new agreements as of or after November 5, 2012, we will accept requests to move their backlists to the quarterly royalty schedule on a request basis. Requests should be sent to email@example.com. Unfortunately, we are unable to entertain combinations of quarterly and semi-annual statements.
