Mystery Writers of America and E-Publishers
The blog site of the Mystery Writers of America organization at has a fascinating tip of the hat to the 21st century practice of E-publishing and their guidelines for approval of an E-publisher for membership in the MWA Organization http://www.mysterywriters.org/?q=mwablog . Amazon qualifies, under the revised guideline “During the preceding year, the publisher must have paid a minimum of $1,000, in advances and/or royalties, to at least five authors with no financial or ownership interest in the company. Payment must be in monies, not in barter for advertising or copies of books.”
E-books, themselves, won’t qualify their authors for membership, at least not yet.
