Complaint Review: FastPencil Inc.
FastPencil Inc. Fastpencil preys off of budding writers, steals royalties, refuses refunds Campbell California
Here is what I can tell you about my encounter with FastPencil Inc. In November of 2014, I wrote a fantasy novel, titled "Fairy Blood: The Meeting of Five." As I was a new writer at the time, hence having doubts as to whether or not I could be picked up by a publisher, I decided to self-publish my new story through a company known as Fastpencil. I initially paid $7,499.00 for something they called a Wavecrest Master Bundle. The bulk of that money was to include several advertising oppertunities, and a sales team was promised to try and pursade big name book stores into having my novel on their shelves. I desperatly needed these, as I was a new writer who was trying to get my name out there. Fastpencil, never provided these services. After six months, and several e-mails and phone calls later, I was finally able to get ahold of one of their supposed agents--one Marina Foley. She informed me over the phone, that the company could no longer provide these services to me. [continued below]....
Fastpencil also seems to be having a great deal of trouble keeping their story straight--as they once told me that a press release had been launched for my novel, but then later during the phone conversation with Ms. Foley I mentioned, she offered to do a press release. I still have yet to recieve a refund of any sort, or my missing royalties. My greatest fear is that Fastpencil is pocketing my earnings, whilst posing as a good and honest company in the eyes of the populace.
