Raider Publishing International Adam Salviani - Director Misleading & frauduently with held all royalty payments. New York New York
I entered in to a contract with Raider Publishing International in Nov. 2011 and in the first 2-3 months they communicated with me & it appeared that all was progressing. I had paid in excess on $4,000 USD in advance to ensure that there would be no delays, etc. They also gave me a guarantee that my book would be published in hard back & E book within 90 days. Within the contract some of the areas that they were to contractually do were:
- Editing / proof reading.
- Book cover design.
- Website design.
- Marketing / Promotion, etc.
- Book signing / speaking finctions.
- Personal Assistant.
- Quarterly royalty payments.
In short, all of the above was outsourced / paid for by myself as RPI didn't do anything. I had 5 different assistants all of whom I had to re-visit / walk them through the process as they had no idea what was happening & all these assistants left RPI as a result of simply not being comfortable working with RPI. No royalty payments have been paid to me in 18 months - Period ! I have sent multiple e-mails / phone calls over the entire period & have all hard copy correspondence supporting this. I haven't heard any response now for over 4 months.
As such, I have sought legal action & will be terminating the contract within 48 hrs. of this notice posted & seeking through the NY courts compensation for all monies initially paid, plus other related costs / damages related to credibility, etc. At present they owe me in excess of $100,000 USD. I'm sure in response, they will as is predicted deny everything & so be it. What I do know, is that denial will not win - Evidence presented will demonstrate 100 % that my case is valid & correct on all counts & a court would lean in favor of RPI / Adam Salviani paying in full what I am entitled to.
If there is anyone out there that has a contact / lawyer in NY that could assist with submitting the appropriate documents in court for action to be taken, I would greatly appreciate it. I'm not surprised but saddened to see that there a number of others who have also been victims of RPI's breach of contract. RPI are not only doing long term damage to themselves / clients, but also to the publishing industry in general. RPI need to be made accountable for there actions totally & should be prevented from ever doing any form of business as soon as possible to prevent anyone else becoming a victim. This not only is RPI but the sole director - Adam Salviani ! Many thanks.
