Readers Magnet solicited me by phone for $1,501 on the basis that a literary agent was interested in publishing my book. After half an hour on the phone, I determined that they wanted me to send them $531 dollars by credit card immediately, and then two more payments. They promised to have a cover designer and a marketing person contact me over the next month. They also promised to register me for a Book Fair in New York, claiming they had the connections.
After looking at their website, and that of the Book Fair, I could make no affirmation that they had any such relationship with the Book Fair, or that the officials or talent agents at the book fair had any relationship with Reader's Magnet. Further, there was no proof offered by them that a publisher's agent had ever expressed any interest in my book. Frankly, Rich Mendez knew so little about my book, that I doubt he had anything other than the title on a list of self-published books.
I am warning authors about this scam.
