Victims of Publish America

AUTHOR: SaveTime - ()

How is this site will take complaints from victims of Publish American then allow this Devon to accuse these people of lying in a very childish way while trying to conceal his identity to start with and finally when he is busted, he announces his name How professional is this. And his spelling in the first sentence was very poor which suggest why they don't have professional editing.

The so-called author said "PublishAmerica is not a scam, but that person did not leave a name and I think the address was a PublishAmerica address, what does that tell you"?

Publish America IS Not A Scam

AUTHOR: Akfa - ()

The Scams Yall Got Are Lies - People using PA Backwards are the scams, and people who don't know much about they company and the publishing, industry are the scams... A book is better than no book - I wonder how much money do you think, Publisher America has to spend on each author they bring in for free,to print and market they book @ each store online, that they books is at. For most of them too sit at home lazy and do nothing with no one in the industry @ the authors on choice to not travel to Oprah's building and sit on her front door of here Harpo studios , just to get in - or keep calling newspapers on the phone and such - also paying a mere 30 dollars to have a writer write the story of your life so Wikipedia will except you .. - and paying a dollar advance , for someone doing nothing, ain't bad - though - and PA has ways to get on different than them as the publisher - people just need to do more in they life and still go with Publish America - It would be better than self publishing and then having no sells - when P.A Pays for every thing on 10 thousand authors i estimate.. Some of yall just mad cause yall can't have enough mula as Publish America to be what they Are..

Based On Comments Online About Reverting RIghts:

I Don't Mean To Sound So Negative Here But;
The Reason Why they Charge people to get they right's back is because they have been sitting around lazy doing nothing toward they books - Meaning they haven't had any sells or very low sells, usually probably no sells for at least 8 months why; the rights selling back to the author comes up - (The person Who Wrote This ,Comment above Did-int Say That)

Do you realizing, that means that you would be paying to take your book of the market and you want your book too stay on the market anyway - and that if you don't pay your book stays available for sale - now all you gotta do is make a real strong try to be something better for your self.

The Authors aren't supposed to pay - what PA Should Start doing is taking they books out of the store for free whenever they choose because the contract says if you don't do interviews, shows and book signings that you have breech the contract... and won't get paid. Mean while they still paying authors Low-key Checks While Breaching there contract. - the 300 dollars means you have breached the contract.You don't have to pay, that's good, cause PA Wants your book still available for sell. Signed Regardless Devon. ( In The Reverted Rights Back Letter It May even say you don't have to pay though you had no sales.)
