Author’s Promotion and Production Report per contract did not occur following the publishing of my book by Vantage Press, Inc. They may have followed through wilth Review copies and Mail announcements, but even as I checked my entire Mailing List placed in their possession, not everyone received notice. I never received an Autograph party at local bookstores or libraries per the P and P Report. That same Promotion and Production Report had notice to Contact, Notify, booksellers, Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com, radio stations suggesting interview, TV stations suggesting appearances of which none of these mentioned occurred. But… these contracts are so cleverly written utilizing terms like “Suggest” and even “Contact,” the company could have attempted the aforementioned and my book was not appealing enough to be placed on Barnes and Nobles shelf, or interviewed by the radio station. My complaint is: A Barnes and Noble website has a link below my book asking the visiting patron to the site to request a “Nook book” from the publisher, if they desire it..barnesandnoble.com/w/urgency-paul-r-smith/1008302166?ean=9780533154111 The resale of my book via e-book, even given out free, is not part of my contract. And shame on Barnes and Noble if my hard copy novel wasn’t good enough to put on their shelves in 2006, now showing interest in exploiting my hard work in 2014. Speaking for everyone caught in my predicament with this same company, it goes to show, people are absolutely evil, knowing they’re profiting off of all of your hard work and it doesn’t faze them one bit, living life in luxury, spoiling themselves off the “Arts” of others’ creations. At least these losers use to wait until the artist was dead before making loads of money off of them. .
