In 2015, T. Allen Hanes approached me at a conference in which I was one of the featured speakers. He introduced himself, complimented my speech and proceeded to pitch me on a book publishing package. The book package included a custom book cover, guaranteed #1 Amazon Best Seller in multiple categories, a celebrity quote for the book cover, 2 press releases (before and after), a radio interview syndicated to major markets, a social media campaign, a book launch party and 50 copies of the book. This seemed like a great deal so I enthusiastically purchased the book publishing package. 

After the conference I never heard from T. Allen Hanes. When several months passed, I contacted T. Allen Hanes many times to get started with no success. No return call, no email, no text. NOTHING. Nine months later, towards the end of 2016, T. Allen Hanes finally sent me a short text saying he was busy but would start working on my book soon. I asked him for a specific time table with no reply. Since then, I have reached out several times only to be ignored. It is now 2018, three years later and NOTHING has been done on my book publishing package. I have chased and chased and chased T. Allen Hanes to the point of rage. T. Allen Hanes ripped me off with no intention of fulfilling the services I bought. 

I contacted the host of the conference where I met T. Allen Hanes to ask for their help. I explained what transpired and they shared that they had also received several other complaints of the same nature and that T. Allen Hanes was banned from attending any future events.    

Since this happened, I researched T. Allen Hanes which I should have done before whipping out my credit card. Interestingly, prior to 2015 there isn't anything to be found. T. Allen Hanes is new to book publishing and just started public speaking in the last 2 years, he is not established.  One particular finding was with T. Allen Hanes talking in several of his videos that he never went to college. However, T. Allen Hanes published his own book on Amazon which he called himself the Rev. Dr. Tracy A. Hanes. Yep, same guy. I copied the information from Amazon and emailed it to him asking for an explanation with no reply. 

T. Allen Hanes is still actively advertising for more book publishing victims, don't be duped like me and several others.

First, I want to say I am a happy customer of T Allen Hanes since 2015.

Next, I would like to add facts to fallacy:
Below appears to claim T Allen Hanes did no work before 2015. I am an author in a book he published in 2014. I know of several before that. A quick Google popped up several 2012 items and one 1998 item by T Allen Hanes. I have known T for quite a while and trust him. He has completed hundreds of commitments, been cheated, wronged and kept his head up each time. I looked at his filing in Galveston County against the individual below. I would not want to be them. They have to be able to prove published claims when defending against defamation of character. Whew!

Mr. T is a stand-up character. Odd the conference that supposedly banned Mr. Hanes is not named so no one can confirm. I know he has been invited back to speak at events he has spoken before and there are no mentions of dissatisfied customers that I can find associated with any of his public events.

To attack a man who retired from service to this country (US Navy) and has given of his time and money to so many charities (including one large one in Houston that deals with underprivileged children) is vain and selfish, in my humble opinion. The damage to a reputation can hurt those he helps by causing pause in allowing his participation and contributions. This has potential to harm more innocent victims.

I give my endorsement to T Allen Hanes and hope to post a follow-up once he wins the million dollar lawsuit and clears his name! Why would you listen or give credance to anyone who states they are at a point of 'rage'. Might be time for a restraining order Mr. Hanes!

Some might laugh this off but it is no laughing matter to someone who wants to continue giving and teaching so others my benefit and this type of claim is made. I do not see the below description anyhwere close to accurate. As a person invovled in a past publishing event, speaking tour and release, there are certain things required of the purchaser to make it successful. I can only guess and ponder if the person below did not fulfill their part to allow T to do his.

If you are a happy customer of Mr. Hanes, put it here, please! Show the love to retired Veteran T Allen Hanes. Family man, christian, charity sponsor and yes, authority figure. Long live Captain Authority!

T Allen Hanes is a Man of HIGH Integrity

AUTHOR: James - (United States)

POSTED: Friday, August 03, 2018

I have done business with T Allen Hanes and found him to be a man of very high integrity.

We are talking about a man who has served our country with HONOR and Distinction for 20 plus years in the Navy before retiring and has a documented track record in the publishing and media industry as well.

This "hit piece" lacks any real substance and I suspect that the author is the same person who attempted to EXTORT tens of thousands of dollars from T. Allen Hanes and now seeks to destroy his online reputation with this false report.

For those that doubt that, I suggest you contact Mr. Hanes attorney for details as he has initiated a 7 figure defamtion lawsuit against this person, the same person I now suspect is authoting this report.  

I challenge the author of the report to actually post real details that supports your fabricated story, lets start with a copy of your publishing contract, the name of the event and the name of the host that has "banned" T. Allen Hanes from speaking again, along with the names of the 2 other "victims" that you speak about in your report.

You cannot do that because your story is 100% made up..

Shame on you for trying to destroy a good mans name with your lies.
