Our nightmare with PublishAmerica began in June 2009 when My husband signed a contract having publishamerica publish "Fighing Back The Long Road Home."

It looked as if school children had edited the book! when we read the proof for correction we found hundreds of errors that were not in our original manuscript, yet when we asked for correction we were told how it would cost us.

The book was released in June 2009 and when August royalties period ended they never even sent him a statement in regards to sales and royalties. When he contacted them stating he would file suit, and local and federal charges for fraud and internet fraud they wrote him telling him if he did so again they would contact our local authorities about our threats! which he explained to them to do as they pleased, that he was well within his legal rights.

I also let them publish my life story Damaged And Broken" Memoirs Of An Abused Child" which was released in NOV. [continued below]....

..... 2009 as time arrived for the next ending of the royalties period in Feb. 2010 I recieved a statement  stating Damaged And Broken had sold one book! And No Royalties statement has ever arrived for Fighting Back The Long Road Home.

When He contacted them by phone and internet explaining he would have to file suit to end this nightmare of abuse by this rip off company, he never even recieved a response. yet they consistently attempt to sell us our own books.

My advice to any new or young publisher unless you are using them to just get a book out there? !!! NEVER ALLOW THEM TO PUBLISH A BOOK FOR YOU !!! They are a con artist !! RIP OFFS !! A SCAM!!! They are liars who care nothing about stealing the royalties of there authors. It's in my opinion that all of us who have been scammed by this corrupt publishing company should get together and file a class action suit against them. I advise all who are scammed by them to  file complaint's with the Maryland Attorney Generals office for theft and fraud. Also file a complaint with the Attorney Generals Office of your home state. Even file a complaint with the authorities and FBI office near you. The crimes they are commiting are Fraud,  Theft by deception, and internet fraud, possibly postal fraud since the USPS is used in there carrying out of there thefts.

What we want is the rights back to our books and to not deal with them anymore in the future. They are liars as we have people from around the country contacting us telling us they have bought said book yet we never recieve royalties from said sells. They are the most un-priffessional company of any type we have ever had any dealings with.

I reccomend going to rip off repoort or that an individul google them and see the see what they are getting into before having any contact with this publishing company!

They are criminals who legally should be prosecuted, for the crimes in which they are committing against innocent people. If any others would like to join a class action suit against them please feel free to contact me.

I honestly swear that above is all accurate, true and correct. I am not a disgruntled author. Simply a person who despises theives.

Thank you for your valuable time, and please avoid dealings with this company and save yourself alot of grief and pain, headaches, ECT. ECT.

I'M IN YOUR CORNER! A FELLOW VICTIM OF THESE ''BLANKETY-BLANKING'' LOWLIFE'S!

AUTHOR: d''racae''lyn - (United States of America)

I AM AUTHOR AMBER MICHELLE.  LIKE YOU, BEING ASSOCIATED WITH PUBLISH AMERICA HAS BEEN A NIGHTMARE FOR ME.  BUT UNLIKE A LOT OF THE PEOPLE WHOSE REPORTS I READ BEFORE DECIDING TO MAKE MINE, I CAN PROVE MY FACTS WITH HARD PHYSICAL, VISUAL EVIDENCE.  NOT ONLY OF THE CANCELLATION LETTER THEY SENT ME, BUT ALSO OF ALL THE ''INCENTIVE'' EMAILS THEY HAVE SENT ME SINCE THE DAY THEY SENT THAT LETTER!  AND VISUAL PROOF THAT THAT BOOK IS STILL POSTED ON THEIR WEBSITE THIS VERY DAY OF JULY 11, 2010.  KIND OF ODD, WOULDN'T YOU THINK, CONSIDERING THE DATE OF THE CANCELLATION LETTER WAS FEBRUARY 16, 2010?  THE NUMBER FOR THE REPORT I FILED TODAY IS 622233 AND I FILED IT AS AUTHOR AMBER MICHELLE.  IT HAS A LINK THAT WILL TAKE YOU TO THE VIDEO THAT I MADE AND POSTED ON YOUTUBE IN MY ATTEMPT TO WARN WRITERS ABOUT THIS COMPANY.

AND I JUST DID A LITTLE ''SPELUNKING'' LOOKING FOR BOTH OF THE BOOKS THAT YOU MENTIONED.  I DID NOT FIND THE ''FIGHTING BACK ONE'', BUT I DID FIND THIS ONE, I THINK IT MIGHT BE YOURS......

I DO NOT JUST WANT TO TAKE THIS COMPANY DOWN.

I WANT TO TAKE THEM COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY OUT.

I WANT THEM TO KNOW THAT THEY MIGHT THINK OF US AS LITTLE BITTY ANTS, BUT THEY FORGET ONE THING.....WHEN ANTS JOIN TOGETHER THEY CAN TAKE DOWN CREATURES A GREAT DEAL BIGGER THAN THEMSELVES, OR AT THE VERY LEAST CAUSE THEM ONE HECK OF A LOT OF PAIN!  SO, FELLOW ''ANT'', ARE YOU READY TO GO ''TAKE A BITE OUT OF P.

Publish America lllp returns the copyrites for Fighting Back The Long Road Home

AUTHOR: Mary - (United States of America)

Today I recieved a certified letter from PA, returning the copywrites to my book Fighting Back The Long Road Home. I had written them an email last night demanding all rights be returned and also for my wifes book Damaged And Broken Memoirs OF An Abused Child.

We will wait and see if the rights are returned to her on her book. If not we will file a lawsuit against PA, and pursue criminal charges.

If they return to her her rights we will leave them alone. Other wise it's on!!!!"Legally"
