Before I give you any answers, as a professional I must advise you NOT to use all capital letters in the heading of any professional emails. It gives off the intent of yelling...and this is not a situation which requires loud voices.
Now, for the answers:
1) The names are listed alphabetically. Also, I did the odd chapters and you did the even chapters. It was done with the intent to let the reader know which author wrote which character's chapters. There's nothing more to it, so please don't make it any deeper than what's on the surface.
2) Once again, as an author you aren't required to do anything else and as a publisher I'm not required to allow you to do anything else. The cover is still being edited, hence the need to push back the release date, due to a printing error. There is no final book, once again, due to a printing error. While I could send you the images, it would be pointless because they're not final. The last sentence has absolutely nothing to do with Gemini so I won't even address it as a publisher. As far as being out of the loop, you could've easily emailed me a long time ago.
3) There is no way you called me and got sent to voicemail...you don't have my updated number. You can't just sign over your rights, you would need my permission as Diamond Cartel to do so...and I'm not going there. As far as refunds, there aren't any. This is a Diamond Cartel and J. Cartier book, is being edited, promoted, published, and released as a Diamond Cartel and J. Cartier book, and given the laws I can't just take it over and not include you. That is considered copyright infringement and is punishable by up to $250, 000 in fines and 5 years in jail. As the publisher, I cannot and will not allow that. As the author, well, that response will come in a separate email.
4) Finally, stop making this personal. Please, for the love of Mike, research the publishing industry, author rights, publisher rights, publishing laws, and copyright laws and you will see that I am doing everything by the book (no pun intended). If you would like to discuss this verbally, please send your contact number and I will give you a call during business hours at my earliest convenience.
