Translated a 130 year old book Cumandá: The Novel of the Ecuadorian jungle, written by Juan Leon Mera, I obtaining the Copyrights then proceeded to publish it with AuthorHouse in 2007, wrong step!!!

AuthorHouse took my money, In early marketing and Publishing to start with were 13 items that included editing $8,600.00, bought 200 non edited books (I still have them because I could not sell them like that) $1,170.00, reediting $1,164.18, for resubmitting the book to printing $150.00, shipped 50 non insured books and lost 33 $460.35; Totaling: $11,544.53 They poorly printed and did little or nothing to publish. Paid them $8,000.00 more for further marketing.

They owe me for the last 2 Royalty Checks. I also know that sense 2007 to the present they never paid me honestly what my royalties would be, besides printing for themselves and selling through different channels for their own profit.

I demand over $30,000.00, that money is not enough for my hard work, my spended money and I am not about to let them get away with this big scam.
