Joshua on 2016-04-21

James on 2016-04-11
I joined www.audible.com and somehow I signed up for a membership. I had no idea I was a Audible member until they started to take my money. I called the company and asked them to cancel my membership and they started to tell me that I'm doing a big mistake and told that I was a satisfied...

Scribd / Scribd has become a joke!

Eve Summers on 2016-04-05
I'm officially done with Scribd. I really loved it and used it for about a year, but then they placed all those crazy limits and lost lots of customers. And I am one of them. Their new rules and platform are ridiculous! I had bought a subscription based on unlimited books and now I can get...

Dorrance Publishing / Published book

P Grantson on 2016-03-30
I published my book with Dorrance/Rosedog in 2005. Things were going along pretty well until they signed on with Amazon to sell my book. Since then, I have not been paid for ANY of the books sold on Amazon. Rosedog Publishing swears no books have been sold, but I know of so many book...

I started using Scribd in 2015 and was very satisfied. I signed up, paid some money and was able to read unlimited books! I spent weeks reading books on Scribd and was very happy. But then they decided to make some changes and set up a new platform. And starting from 2016 that terrible...

Fanstory.com / Rigged contests/ranking/fraud

Nika_2016 on 2016-03-22
Fanstory.com advertises contests for cash on Facebook. This is the lure and hook, but only top ranked writers win. The ranking is arbitrary where reviews from top ranked raise a writer's rank and prestige. Nothing is based on merit or writing skills. One's work can only move to the first...

BookWhirl.com / Book Publishing/Marketing

Jeanie Cooke-Fredlund on 2016-03-18
Over a year ago I self-published my book BAD RAP, The Truth About the Tragically Misunderstood Pit Bull, with Bookwhirl.com. I paid Bookwhirl (up-front - silly me) $2000.00 to publish two books for me. I have not submitted my second manuscript to them due to my experience with my first...

I thought I was being helpful by ordering an illustrated children's dictionary that ended up totaling $51.95 after process and handling. It's now March 2016 and I've NEVER received my order!

Kerry Jacobson (Book Publicist) / Author Marketing

An Author on 2016-03-17
I hired Kerry just a couple months ago at the referral of a friend who had some success with him. He spoke about how he could set up a massive marketing campaign for my book, getting it to the WSJ, NYT, and USA Today bestseller lists. He sent me a money-back guarantee, and I unfortunately...

Don’t sell you books to www.beerfortextbooks.com. I have a lot of books from my studies, which I didn’t need anymore. I decided to make extra cash and sold all the books to this seller. He provided confirmation email and it was written that the check was already mailed. Ok, I didn’t get it...

Bookrenter / Textbook Rental

Reviewer64147 on 2016-03-02
Upon returning two books to two different renters, my daughter mixed up the editions of the same book. Bookrenter swore they received the correct book. The other renter then returned Bookrenter's book (and charged me $115 for the one Bookrenter kept). After two months of trying to resolve...
