I was approached by Jason Swiney of Fontaine Press a few years back to publish my book. It was selling around 800 copies per week. I have not received a single cent of the royalties Fontaine Press owe me. They are not a real publisher. They simply take your manuscript, make a pdf out of it, create an ISBN and sell it as print on demand copies. 

I contacted Jason Swiney to ask where my royalties are and he said that they hadn't sold any books but for that year I had received thousands of emails from people saying they had bought my book and enjoyed it etc. When I started selling the book myself again through my website, not trusting this company anymore, I again sold between 600 and 1400 copies per week.

Jason Swiney is a liar and a thief. I would avoid having anything to do with this con artist or his company.
