Star America Books Publish America RIPEOFF , BULLIES Frederick Maryland
Free or not they shouldn’t treat customers like trash. We get that we may not be the best authors but some of us just have the dream of simply getting our work into someone’s hands even if it is just one person. In 2012 I published my book through Publish America which is now known as ” Star America Books.” I was very excited it was my first book. I started getting other people involved to get the word out there that I was about to publish my very first book.
I knew it wasn’t a best selling book but it was a book that had to do with my faith. I was publishing it to inspire someone out there they may have wanted to give up not to make millions of it. I just recently decided to just write another book and even try to market the book I published through Publish America. I contacted them and here was the response I got after I told them that I was considering working with another company and I also told them I felt like I was scammed.
I got the email from Star America Books stating this:
No, if you pay money, then you are being scammed. You will find that you will pay hundreds of dollars for the same services that we perform for free. That is a scam. We will not transfer publication rights to vanity publishers.
If a legitimate publisher should express interest in your work, which is doubtful, please let us know, and we will be happy to arrange a rights transfer. Remember:
No other publishers wanted your book.
No other publishers would give you anything at all.
No other publishers would publish your book free of charge.
We gave you what no other publisher would give you.
If you want more free stuff, please do some research and let us know what other publishing company will give it to you.
Can you find one?
and this after I told them they had horrible customer service:
Yes, thank you; we’re proud of our customer service. We actually tell the truth. Just as we thought; we were right, no other publisher wanted your book, and now you’re going to pay someone to publish your book. Someone who cares because YOU pay them.
And, no, we do NOT have “a lot of law suits[sic].”
And, no, we have not had “a lot of law suits[sic].”
In fact, we don’t have ANY!
Would you please let us know how much you’re paying?
We’d like to tell you what you would get from us for that amount.
I would be afraid to ever work with this company again…their creditability doesn’t exist. If you have the dream of putting your book out in the public’s eye don’t use this company. Do your research first . There are other companies out there that will take your book…it may take some time to do research but it is better than being treated poorly and being scammed. Even if you have to pay a little to get it published it will be worth it…I wouldn’t submit anything to this company even if it is 100% free…I am hoping that there would be enough people to complain about this company that it goes out of business. Sooner than later.
