We are the Authors of the book "Catch Falling Stars"
After paying over $1500.00 to publish a spiritually enlightening book, we have discovered that Chad Lilly with his company "Inner Circle Publishing" has taken advantage of not only us but other authors as well.
If Chad publishes your book he will attempt to force you to be a part of his "Mastermind Principle" making you to direct all website traffic to his site only.
He has NO 3RD PARTY VERIFICATION SYSTEM of books being sold and you have to rely on his word.
If you do not follow what he says about the way your books are sold through ICP he will then threaten to cancel your contract. We had our contract threatened at least 3 times.
He is a petulant child and acts like one too. He wants to control every author and dictate how and when they get paid, how to market their own life's work and who they should and should not associate with.
We have also received scathing e-mails and nasty remarks about other people on Blog Talk Radio who did not subscribe to Chad Lilly's point of View. (These can be posted on rip off report if need be) Chad also has a Broadcast there on BTR called "AWARE" Talk radio and the only thing we became aware of was, that he is not enlightened at all.
We have e-mail complaints from not only other BTR Radio Hosts about his behavior towards them but that they too view him as a bully and crackpot. Even his own authors have secretly sent us e-mails about the way he try's to control and manipulate all of them and their own work.
He cannot produce true sales figures or books on time.
He has NO 3RD PARTY VERIFICATION SYSTEM of books being sold and you have to rely on CHADS WORD ONLY .
We ordered our own supply of books from Inner Circle in November 2008. We received our books on February 19 2009 after a long frustrating venture.When we asked about our missing box of books that we paid for, including why the books were mailed to the wrong address, Chad informed us he was too busy to deal with such trivial matters.
He then received the books to his home on December 18 by UPS and still proceeded to deny he knew where our book shipment was.
Chad then made up some story that the books went to the wrong address after we tracked our books through UPS and their tracking number.
We believe this was an attempt to punish us for not being a part of his mastermind principle. You can check the UPS registry for delivery confirmation.
NEVER DO BUSINESS with INNER CIRCLE PUBLISHING OR CHAD LILLY.
When we questioned his payment system in an e-mail letter, he treated us like a child and proceeded to send our private e-mail to all of his authors with a threat of canceling our contract.
Of the many authors listed on his site only several seem to be doing any books sales. These are admitted friends and business associates of his. Yet many authors are actively marketing their books and they too have questioned his sales figures and payment.
We currently hold many receipts from friends and family who purchased books through the internet and to date we have been paid for 3 since July of 2008.
After our contract with Inner Circle Publishing was canceled, Chad continued to sell our Book CFS on the internet. We were still able to purchase our book easily and without any problems.
Isn't that Copyright Infringement?
Only the threat of LEGAL ACTION forced Chad cease and desist our sales. Then Chad proceeded to make an untrue and totally ridiculous post about us and Catch Falling Stars on Amazon where our book was selling.
We have done nothing wrong! Do not give your life's work or money to this predatory animal.
