I am the author of The Chip Hustler by Barbara Lee. Do not publish with Author House/Author Solutions dba Bertram Capital Management. They have stolen every author's royalites, using the stolen royalties to invest with over 300 investors. It is money laundering.
Here is how the royalties are being stolen. When you type in your ISBN number on Amazon.Com, it automatically defaults to your barcode number which is no longer is your assigned ISBN number. Every false ISBN number assigned to your book, resolves around the Algebric formula of your barcode. Author House changed their bad name to Author Solutions around 2009. Author Solutions is hyjacking all authors barcodes, while no sales are going into the author's book ISBN.
Following is a link to the ISBN converter, as to how Author Solutions comes up with an outdated fake 10-digit SKU or ISBN that they deceitfully assign to authors account to channel book sales into variations ISBN numbers to control the royalties.
Every book published after 1/2007 is required by law to have a 13 digit ISBN number,unless author published before 2007. In that case, author can use a 10 digit ISBN and a 13 digit ISBN number. I published in 2007. Amazon.Com and other internet book vendors are using the 10 digit and 13 digit for The Chip Hustler. Illegal. I published in 2008.
Google ISBN Country Codes. 0-1 is the country code and 1 is for English speaking countries. It still shows 0-1 for the United States, UK and other English speaking countries. In 2007 978-1 was made legal by The Bowker ISBN Agency located in New Jersey. Scroll down the list of ISBN country codes. 978-1 belongs to the criminal country of Nigeria. My feeling is that all mainstream authors and print on demand authors with the ISBN number beginning with 978-1, is having some oftheir royalty money funneled into Nigeria. I could be wrong, but why is Nigeria listed as a country code for the United States via the computer. Nigeria is a criminal country. But I do know one thing for sure. Books being sold on the internet is an international money laundering scheme.Stolen royalties can't be deposited into a US bank or banks in other countries, without the IRS getting involved. The stolen royalty money has to be taken out of the country. Senate Bill 3804 is pending in Congress. When that bill passes, it is designed to protect authors royaltie.
I have complained to the legal department of Amazon.Com. Why? Because on www.bookfinder.com The Chip Hustler showed in item 25 in used books, which I made a hard copy of, "Huge seller with millions of transactions." Now, it has been removed. Item 10 now shows Amazon.Com Canada temporarilly out of stock. Out of stock means my book is selling. The total amount of royalties paid to me since I published in 2008 is almost $90.00. Type in the google search, "The Chip Hustler."As of December 19, 2010, the hits on The Chip Hustler is 6 million hits. Of course, my book is selling and all of my royalties have been stolen by Author House/Author Solutions dba Bertram Capital Management. The CEO at Bertram Capital Management is Jeffery Drazen.
The feds are going bust Bertram Capital Management. It is being investigated.
