Complaint Review: Publish America
Publish America111 E. Curch St. Internet United States of America
Publish America Breach of contract, lies, misrepresentation of company & services Internet
Publish America offers themselves to the unsuspecting, would be, author as a Traditional Publishing Company. They are in fact a sham, only a POD that uses locations in the UK as well as the USA to con victims out of money with misrepresentations and lies about their services and products. Publish America has very one sided and vague langauge in the contract that leaves the Author with no rights, no help. PA is known to be a scam, they are referred to as a POD online and ONLY Publish America calls itself a traditional publisher. In the publishing business the services offered by Publish America are considered to serve the POD industry rather than a traditional publishing company: PA doesn't edit, unless you pay; they do not market unless you pay; your title, full of errors will be available on web sites and ordered as a POD. You will not have atracking method to know if your book sells or where it sells. You will not sell many books and probably will invest far more than you would make in the 7 year contract in the first year alone. Books are marketed to authors only! If you want more you pay for it. They bait authors with deals & offers to get you to purchase your books so they cansay theywill send FREEcopies to book stores, celebrities, industry magazines, etc. No promises it will happen just it might be read by who knows. PA can't sell your book so they have to GIVE it away, some marketing ploy! There are many thousands ofupset authors out there. The press, media and our government leaders should step up and shut down PA to stop the fraud and the heartbreak. RED FLAG Publish America's name. They should be named Scam America!
