Publish America nonegotiable changed my mind about contract won't let me out I didn't know you couldn't change your mind However they told me if the reason is good enough I could I was denied Frederick Maryland
*Consumer Suggestion: Naive trying to get out of a legal contract after you have signed it is not too swift
*Consumer Comment: You Contacted your Lawyer When...?
Neither Publish America or I have invested any money in this project. We have only been swopping e-mails. I begged them to let me go and they won't release me. I also was told the contract does not offer the author any leaveway or rights. My lawyer viewed it and found the contract unjust and felt sorry for me for not being knowledgeable of the embalance to the publisher and the author. They asked for a copy of my social security number to be sent with contract.
I thought they were a traditional publishing company. But I've learned they are a print-on-demand company. Something I did not want to be involved with. Prior to signing the contract I had searched the web to see if they were legitimate. I found nothing negative until I signed the contract. I immediate asked to be released. They denied the possibility. Why can't I change my mind? The contract is supposedly completed when I receive a dollar check for royalties. We are no where close to that stage of the contract. Also I didn't know I had to do so much work such as editing and type-setting for my book. That was not mentioned in the contract.
