Friends, today I received news that ARe is closing on December 31st. I’ve had my books there since the beginning, those published by Dreamspinner Press and Harmony Ink as well as those self-published under Labyrinth Bound Press. The news came as a shock to the romance community, as ARe has been one of the staple stores where readers go to buy their books.
I pulled all the Labyrinth Bound Press books from the site and Dreamspinner and Harmony Ink are doing so as well. Why are we pulling? ARe isn’t paying full royalties for the last quarter and has offered to pay only 10¢ on the dollar instead.
If you’ve purchased books on ARe over the years, I urge you to go and download all your books. The site is crashing, so be patient. You might have to do it over the next few days.
My books are still available at these sites, so I haven’t disappeared. 😘
