Well, that's awkward! Y'all really need to rethink your scheduled marketing efforts when you're in the middle of a very public crisis. 😬
Context: "For months, the children’s publishing community has been communicating about Albert Whitman & Co. not paying authors their royalties in a timely fashion, amplified by a lack of responsiveness to their agents." publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/ch…
"Meanwhile, management continued to spend money on things that were not contractually owed, like redesigning and rebranding the company logos." 😐
So much of this reminds me of F+W's final years before filing for bankruptcy. Hubris, incompetence, and a dash of malfeasance.
