Publish American agreed to publish my book. I was a bit leary because of the complaints against them but signed the contract anyway. All went well until the editing process. My book was returned with more errors than the original manuscript and when I tried to change them they refused to make any corrections and wanted to leave the book the way it was. They would only correct spelling and grammar errors that they had made. They changed my real name to my pen name but kept my real name on all of the pages and will not change it. This is a major problem because my story is an autobiography and DO NOT want my identity known. I even asked to change the name of my book and they refused. They are ruining my hard work and they do not have that right. They will not e-mail me and when I call the person I speak with replies "there is nothing I can do and there is no one else to speak to"
My book is a mess and I am ashamed for anyone to read it.
