My name is Gloria and I am a self-published author paying for services in BookVenture.I cannot bear the thought of knowing a lot of other hopeful writers like me are being ripped off by a company who lacks the decency to be truthful and fair to their authors.
Out of anguish from what I have learned about them and what I’ve personally experienced, I hired the services of a private investigator and learned of the following: • The office they say they have in Michigan is a joke. There’s no one there to entertain you should you decide to drop over. They’re nowhere operating in any of the states. They are in the Philippines; • They’ll initially tell you of an upfront cost and that it’s all you’ll have to pay.
Not very long you start receiving irksome calls asking you for money with no proof they’re fulfilling anything. Worse you realize you’re not really getting any royalty from your hard-earned money and they keep giving you the worst excuses, prolonging the agony and wasting your time and opportunity; • Most of their authors are either too old or too young and they exploit these weaknesses; • You go to the Better Business Bureau and you see mostly bad reviews and comments against them. I managed to put in my own review and I’m just so aghast they’re getting away from all of this. Those are probably not all there is to this outrageous scheme.
Here are some helpful links I managed to check out myself: https://www.bbb.org/detroit/business-reviews/publishers-book/book-venture-publishing-llc-in-ishpeming-mi-90025868/reviews-and-complaints http://www.selfpublishingreview.com/2016/01/bookventure-rips-off-spr-products-without-permission-charging-1700-more-to-their-authors/ https://bookventure.pissedconsumer.com/victim-of-book-venture-publishing-llc-201710201117891.html I urge you to take action. Our books should fly along with our dreams the very day we started working on them. A spiteful company like BookVenture doesn’t deserve our trust nor should they be allowed to continue abusing numerous other vulnerable authors.
Sincerely yours, Gloria M.Fellow Author
