Summary = Authors campaign against vanity publishers who take advantage
Body = Please can you put this on your site to stop authors being
taking advantage of.
Against undesirable Publishing companies
is an organisation that looks out for authors who fall into the
trap of enlisting with undesirable Publishing companies who take
advantage of authors by not paying them the royalties that are due
We have a membership
which is free of 98 authors and we investigate publishing companies
who do not pay their authors the royalties that are due to them.
We have launched
an investigation which has now been passed to HM Customs, Trading
Standards and also BBC Watchdog after receiving 17 complaints against
the activities of Cool publications. www.coolpublications
has found that the named company have not been paying the correct
royalties to their authors, hence making more money for the company
as a whole. We have found that the books that Cool Publications
sell are being sold all over the net, here and abroad and the authors
are only receiving a small per cent of the royalties which we have
narrowed down to 10 to 1 in the favour of Cool Publications.
What this means is that out of every ten copies sold of an authors
book, the author is only told about one copy out of the ten sold
and only receives royalties for one out of ten copies sold.
We have also
found that the owner of Cool Publications is using three names to
make his company sound a lot larger than it is and to make it seem
he has more staff than he does. We have found that his staff revolves
around himself and his three names that he uses and also his wife/partner
who also uses different names. We have also found that he is making
false claims of people that he has worked for and have also found
that he is making false promises of opportunities that never materialised.
we aim to let as many people know of the underhand tactics that
are taking place and recommend that authors send their manuscripts
to official honest organisations.
If you have
any questions then please do not hesitate to ask.
