      This is a warning to all new authors, if you see the name Publish America, don't walk run. My name is Thomas ****, I am a published author, when I first started out a few years ago I did the stupid thing and used Publish America, was that a mistake.

      I have three books with Publish America, Sonnet's For Caitlin, Sonnet's For Friends & lovers and a children's book called The Fox and the Young Rooster. To date I have not received one cent on books sold by them in two years. Today I got this email from them:

 Dear Thomas ****:
Your book "The Fox and The Young Rooster", has shown no sales for longer than a year. At this time you may want to have your book's publishing rights reverted back to you.

 We can arrange that.  Go to and instruct us to return the rights to you. In the Ordering Instructions box, write your name and the title of your book. We will forward the termination documents to you.  There are no strings attached to this termination except the $99 processing fee that covers our administration costs and our de-listing obligations to vendors and/or wholesalers. You must choose a shipping/fulfillment option to activate your rights return instruction. This opportunity expires this week.  Thank you for having been a PublishAmerica author, or for sticking around if that's what you prefer!

Now here is the funny part all 3 of those book have been selling, I just sent a women a signed books back to here after she had amazon mail them to me to send back to her. These are not the only ones I have signed and sent out to folks that have bought them. Also The book Sonnets for Friends and lovers they were not to publish that as they had missed their contract date and I wrote them and told them (Publish America) not to publish it.

You can find all of these books on Barnes and Noble and Amazon, you can also find WHEN THE STORM GOD RIDES by another publisher that is doing very well. In fact  WHEN THE STORM GOD RIDES is going to be made into a film in April 2013. I say this because I can back up everything I am telling you. PUBLISH AMERICA ARE CROOKS AND USING AND RIPPING OFF YOUR WORK!

I for one intend to deal with them at a later date, once I have been paid for the movie.  I ask you to do your research before you (the Author) turn your hard work over to people like Publish America.

Best Regards
Thomas ****
