  2. Hi,
    This is Peter from SeriousReading.com 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,
