I have been with this company since 2011. I have been wanting help to get my book fully edited. They want 200 bucks just to look at it. And a thousand dollars just to do the job. I waited and went with an outside editor from this company. She charged me 700 bucks which she cut down in payments. Now that we are done she still says it needs work but not much. I get a call yesterday for the Hollywood movie thing for my book which they want to charge me 799. I'm getting red flags from this company, and my editor literally freaked when I told her I'm with this company. I need answers .
sort by best latest
That makes me wonder as well. When I first started with this I was young and didn't know the things I know now. I was trusting, but now that I have experienced the world I don't trust anything. They want a 1000 to edit to even look at it 200.
My goal isn't to get on the best sealers list. I'm just tired of being ripped off. I understand a negative here and there, but when I see several negatives on top of so many other negatives it certainly makes me wonder what I have gotten myself into
Have you signed any contracts with them? If not, then walk away. CreateSpace is who I use for my print books, and it doesn't cost me anything to get set up. All I pay for is the books I order. I've done several books and have had no issues with them.
Well I'm sure I had to, but that was in 2011. I do remember having to fax stuff. I'm going to have to see how I can get out of this. My editor is going to call me today. I'll see what advice she has for me.
Just a thought; have you already paid them to work on your book? A traditional publishing company pays you upfront if they are interested in your work, not the other way around. I would really like to discuss this more indepth with you outside of HP.
Like I said I was young and didn't know. Where do you want to talk to me?
Thank you for your response. I wish I was lucky enough to not have given them any money. But I did :/. Even my editor was like 'oh honey we need to talk.' That scared me. Ive read that it's really hard to get any of your work out of there company.
