Thousands Join Dorchester Publishing Boycott

Last week novelist Brian Keene called on readers and writers to boycott Dorchester Publishing. According to Keene, thousands have now joined his cause.

Keene posted more details on his blog: “I walked in my door, turned on the computer, and found several hundred more emails and messages … We’d hoped that some of our fellow Dorchester authors would join in, and they have. I’ve chronicled some of their experiences here. The comments section here, here, and here are full of more. And dozens of Dorchester authors have taken to their own Blogs to relate their own experiences – including Stacy Dittrich, whose own experience makes mine seem like a trip to Disney World.”

Last year the Mystery Writers of America de-listed the publisher, writing: “We have been hearing an unusually high number of reports from our members of unpaid advances and withheld royalties on their Dorchester books.”
