Complaint Review: America Star Books - Frederick Maryland
America Star Books Publish America Unprofessional, Threatening, Disrespectful, Bullying Frederick Maryland
I recently attenpted to contact "Publish America", to get the right back to my book. Only to learn they were doing business under another name. When I contacted "America Star Books"; "PA's" new name, the response to my email blew me away. I wrote, asking to have my book rights returned me. I stated, I was well aware of the class action taken against them but, I was not interested in suing. All I wanted was my book back.
Their response was rude, belittling, and threatening. Someone responded by denying the lawsuit and accused me of making false statements. This person went on to write that I didn't know what I was talking about and if I didn't apologize immediately, they would have their lawyers contact me.
I then responded, with what I read, and now believe to be true. A case was filed; for what appears to be a plethora of reasons. I again wrote I wasn't interested in money or lawsuits. I simply wanted the rights to my book back. I told the person responding to me, I didn't appreciate being threatened or disrespected by what was supposed to be a reputable publisher. And again asked how to get back my book.
I also mentioned them shutting down one DBA, only to open the same company under a new DBA. Which appears to be a shady move, but the person responding to me, never addressed why it was done.
Said person responded again, writing; I made a complete fool of myself. I fell for the "nonsesnse" on the internet, the case was thrown out on merit. He or she also wrote their rude response was not unecessary. Going on to falsely accuse, me of trying to sue them. And even demanded an apology again. They asked why I want back my publishing rights.
I'm now awaitng another round of harsh coomunication. Because, of course it would be too easy to just relinquish my book back to me. The one the listed on Amazon and Publish America, unedited and over priced.
