*General Comment: About Derek Vasconi and Sakura-Publishing
BewareDerek Visconi is "CEO" of a website called Sakura Publishing that publishes ebooks.
He advertises on craigslist (and other places) for people to work converting PDF / .doc ebooks to Smashwords and Kindle formats.
Derek will come off as a nice guy but will avoid discussing to discuss a firm price. He will claim that payment is "no problem" and then after you complete work and bill him, he will come up with all kinds of excuses to not pay.
He will then insist on a "free sample". I suggest that IF you decide to do anything for this person, that you demand at least partial payment before doing any work.
You have been warned. This guy wants you to do high quality work for peanuts. If you are willing to do that, fine. Just be aware that this person will change his "nice guy" tune in a moment's notice after getting your work.
He talks about "trust" and then turns around and will not pay even after you submit the work.
I gave this person a steep discount and he still refused to pay.
Just beware and I really would suggest avoiding working with him or Sakura Publishing. There are other ways to make money than working for dishonest people such as this.
