Publish America / Awful company (Complaint Comment)

your contract with PublishAmerica, which requires that any dispute be taken to arbitration rather than to court; and (2) any lawsuit, even a class action, is likely to be costly, because lawyers are unlikely to take a case like that on a contingency fee basis. I decided not to throw good money after bad...

Author house LONDON / publication of my book (Complaint Comment)

a book published by PublishAmerica. It was a crappy, crappy, crappy piece of crap and only got "published" cause they will take anything. My writing is alot better now because of school, but I think my improvement had more to do with that book. A year after it was published I tried to re-read it and was thinking "Oh my God...

Publish America / Awful company (Complaint Comment)

You do not want to publish through PublishAmerica. If you are looking for a publisher, go to the library or the book store, find books similar to yours, and then note the publisher(s). You can also check out Preditors and Editors. It's a web site that has a lot of information on publishers, good and bad...

PublishAmerica New York / Fales advertising, marketing (Complaint Comment)

what a scam company publishamerica is. I see my books for sale in almost every online books store, but yet the company says it has sold 0 copies for the last two years. not only that, but after finding a copy in the local barn and noble, I saw it was not what I had approved, it is riddled with errors and typo's when I discused it with them, they were rude and told me straight up, they thought it was in marketable condition and would make no changes...

Publish America / Awful company (Complaint Comment)

PublishAmerica (PA) is a scam. They pretend to be a commercial publisher, but the company's business model is to sell books to its own authors, not to the general public. The lack of distribution, marketing, and publicity means the author is on his own in trying to sell books, and PA's ridiculous prices, poor quality, and bad reputation hamstring the author's efforts to do so...

Strategic Book Publishing AEG Publishing Group Stoneville / Fraud (Complaint Comment)

this company as bas as PublishAmerica? No, not by a long shot, but that doesn't mean that they're legit. Be sure to look at your contract with them. The fact that your books will be "available" at B&N, Borders, or Books-A-Million doesn't mean those companies physically stock it there (unless you beg the manager)...

Yet when I start thinking about Publishamerica and I get steamed. Toot Toot! I have similar stories. One is about the embarrasssing moment I told my family and friends to buy my book at major bookstores and ten BAM no book available on the shelves. My book also had been changed, the text...

Publish America / Awful company (Complaint Comment)

Ga

disappointed in the work that Publishamerica did to my book. I am so ashamed of my book I don't even tell people how they can buy it. Publishamerica send me all kind of emails on how to purchase my own book, but when it comes time to file a complaint knowone is around to take it. When my book was getting ready to come out I told everyone my family, friends, and co workers that they can buy the book at all the major bookstores, because this is what publishamerica had told me...

Publish America / 7 year contract (Complaint Comment)

within the cover: PublishAmerica has allowed this work to remain exactly as the author intended, verbatim, without editorial input. The e-copy submitted to me for my approval prior to publication was completely butchered, and of decidedly inferior quality, requiring forty eight pages of corrections...

PublishAmerica New York / Fales advertising, marketing (Complaint Comment)

many troubles with PublishAmerica since my book came out in April 2017. I've had these problems: mistakes in the text, failure to correct them appropriately or entirely, refusal to void my contract, and the latest: My book is unavailable to the public. Friends have been searching Amazon and B&N and ordering the book only to be told three weeks later that the book is unavailable and the order has to be canceled...

file a complaint about PublishAmerica? Also if we have receipts to prove sales of books and statements from publishamerica that read Zero sold.

Publish America / Awful company (Complaint Comment)

PublishAmerica sells books through credit cards only. If you have a problem, file your complaint with your credit card company. They WILL investigate and if PA is found to be at fault, they can be fined by the credit card company. If enough complaints of a similar nature are filed against them, PA could lose its vendor status with the credit card company...

Publish America / Awful company (Complaint Comment)

been badly scammed by PublishAmerica (PA). The stories are the same throughout. PA''s modus operandi is to scam, defraud, cheat, exploit, mislead, lure their victims through false advertising and make life miserable to unsuspecting authors, especially first authors. I've engaged the services of an intellectual property law counsel based in Baltimore, Maryland, who's suggested bringing a class action lawsuit against PublishAmerica...

Publish America / Awful company (Complaint Comment)

word out that it is PublishAmerica and they are crooks. The best thing we can do is try to save others from falling into their pit of lies and deception and breech of contract policies. The second thing you can do is. keep writing. Don't fall into a mode of depression and anger and spend a year or more trying to find an easy way out...

PublishAmerica New York / Fales advertising, marketing (Complaint Comment)

PublishAmerica refused to accept VITAL changes to a book I have written and are insisting on publishing it without them. The reason the changes were vital was because the book deals with the 1920's when Ireland was partitioned and Ulster became six counties while Eire retained the other 26. There was a lot of violence at that time and some of it was depicted in the book but given the recent resurgence of violence here, in particular with the Real IRA, I thought that this needed to be toned down...

PublishAmerica New York / Fales advertising, marketing (Complaint Comment)

PublishAmerica didn't charge for publishing and although they didn't give Advances I thought well at least it won't cost anything to get published. So I signed up. I sent them two drafts of two different books and they were happy enough. Then I was very ill and the books were the last thing on my mind...

I've been having many troubles with PublishAmerica as well since my book came out in May 2009. Like all authors, I believe in the potential for my book, but have been bamboozled by this company time and time again. I do wish I had waited for a reputable company, but as with first time authors, I let my enthusiasm for being published clud my judgment...
