*Author of original report: Raider Publishing International NY responds
After having worked on it for over two and half years and at considerable expense, I wrote the manuscript titled The Tragedy of Kashmir. Being impressed by the claim that the company has been founded for the benefit of authors, I decided to get it published by Raider Publishing International, New York.
I was asked to pay a sum of 998 U.S.Dollars which included the charge for publication and an extra charge for Fast Service Option to get my book published within four months, otherwise the book would take one year for publication. I paid the money opting for the Fast Service. In their Timeline the company informed me that "you will be the first to receive copies of your book (free of charge)"
The book has been released on internet on 11th February 2011 without my knowledge after a period of over one year and seven months. During the intervening period my letters to the company, written in most civil language, were either not replied at all or evoked a response weeks later.
In my last letter written on 11th March 2011, the Founder of the company wrote '.... If you let me know where you would like your free copies sent, we can get them to you right away... We'll do all we can to proceed efficiently from here." I have yet to receive the author's copies. My last two letters to him remain unanswered.
A friend of mine sent me a copy of the book from America. I was shocked to see the mistakes in it. The spelling of the word tragedy appear as "tradegy" on top of every alternate page. Words in the text are missing, sentences are repeated and the index is a complete mess. I would not have allowed the book to be released for sale if I was sent a copy first as promised.
I feel totally let down by the publisher. My first written book and reputation as an author has been irreparably damaged.
