Disalusioned

Have to keep my chin up. This illustration is from my children's book Ducky Grows Up which is sold on the Nook.
I learned a few months ago that things are not always as they seem. It's one thing after the other. My new book The Other Side Of the Mountain was released in June. I have a signed contract with the publisher and I have not heard from them in five months. Does anyone know if this company has dropped off the face of the earth? Is any other author having problems with them?
I am certainly not going to stress over this because there are ways of dealing with this sort of thing.
But it's hard to write when I have all this on my mind. Hard to concentrate, but I'm hanging in there. Working on another romance The Upside of Down... how ironic, but it's a love story. waiting on my editor with the Paranormal that I'm still working on. Actually, it's in the mail, she was fast. unlike the mail. So, i'm not being idle.
I've adopted not a wait and see attitude but rather patience and understanding for my work. I'm not sure I can understand what is going on with these publishers. How can they take your own material as if it's theirs and violate their own contract. Would you believe this is the second time this has happened to me in less than three years. I trusted this company. You may smile and say never trust a publisher, but i'm stupid that way. I have to trust that the company and people I deal with have scruples. The advance is not much, really, but at least it could have bought more materials, pens, pencils, paper. In the meantime I'm getting residuals from Kindle.
