CHECK YOUR FACTS! A Warning for Authors

I don’t normally do this sort of thing, but hopeful (and sometimes desperate) authors should be warned when there is someone out there that will try to take advantage of them or promise them …

Kawanee was born in Alexandria Louisiana but her first real memories are of Russellville Arkansas. She's always loved to read, and has always had an vivid imagination. She grew up in a house where almost everyone read, they didn't need a TV although she could still be found planted on her butt in front of her grandma's TV watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. She made up her first story with her mother when her cat died; it was about where pets go when they die. She continued to create stories from bad dreams she had and her dad would help her change nightmares to stories. They would sit up in a chair until the scary went away. He told her that: "Dreams, good or bad, are just stories your mind makes up. You are the author of your dreams; if you don't like them rewrite them. " She was hooked and has continued to read and write stories drawing from dreams, sights and just pure imagination. She just recently decided she'd like to try and get published and fail than wonder what if. Her story continues but where it goes from here is up to you, the Reader... She hopes you'll join her in finding out where her journey goes from here!

  2. Hi,
    This is Peter from commenting in regards to the article and author you make reference to.

    Our website is not a scam as it’s been implied and this was a clear case of dealing with an author with a bad attitude after a misunderstanding. We have hundreds of happy authors to vouch for us.

    Upon creating the review for the book in question, a portion of the author bio the author had on his Amazon page was used, some parts of it turned to be understood incorrect. Instead of pointing this to us politely so we can correct it as a honest mistake, the author started throwing bad language at us (which can be seen even in the post you reference). That’s an attitude we find strongly immature.

    As a result the review was removed and the author fee was refunded.

    As such I feel calling us a scam is not fair and would appreciate a correction.

    Thank you,
