Christine Favara Anderson is represents herself as a "hybrid publisher," partnering with the author to publish book, which she claims includes marketing (upfront feeds are "paid" for marketing, as stated in the contract). In fact, her publishing company uploads files of the manuscripts to Create Space, putting out shoddy work that is not consistent with market standards.
The extent of her "marketing" includes posts of the book covers on social media, with promises of book placement in major retail stores (including Target, Walmart, Costco, etc.) Royalties promised to several authors published under her former publishing company: Christine F. Anderson Publishing and Media, were never paid. In fact, royalty checks were issued, bounced, and promised to be reconsiled as a direct deposit. This never happened. In addition, she asked for large amounts of money from these same authors to be released from their contracts after bounding their checks and failing to perform as contracted. In addition, Christine F. Anderson claimed to have brain cancer and various other diseases, none of which were confirmed (in fact, investigation by authorities suggested these medical complaints were also false), in order to garner sympathy from her authors to avoid demand for payment of royalties due.
Christine Anderson was reported to authorties by several authors. She went quiet for a period of time, but has returned with a new publishing company: Sage Wisdom Publishing Company.
Writers beware. Please stay clear of Christine F. Anderson's businesses. She has record of felony mail fraud in California. She served time in jail for fraud. It is unlikely her cons have ceased. Authors are advised to steer clear of her and her company.
