I just found out someone else – in fact, the woman who was my advisor during the writing process – was chosen to write the second PowerPoint 2010 book for the publisher who produced mine.
I got passed over.
That means either they weren’t as happy as they could have been with what I provided them, or they felt they had to find another author for some reason (maybe I whined too much about them “forgetting” to pay me). Whatever the reason, I didn’t get the follow-up book. For those of you who’ve asked I guess we all have our answer now.
I got passed over. And I feel pretty bad about that, doggone it. I’d think they’d say something if they weren’t happy with the product, but … what do I know?
Still, maybe there’s another opportunity out there with this publisher, or with another publisher through the same agent. I’m willing to hope so. But I also might call the agent and see why someone else was chosen to do the follow up book and find out what he says. Then hope he’s honest with me.
Oh well. Have a great holiday weekend.
