Disgusting and Despicable

RoseDog Publishing is a disgusting, despicable company that takes lots and lots of money from writers who are unfamiliar with publishing. They take advantage of writers who simply want to publish a book by charging them thousands of dollars for what the writer can do...

I was going through Dorrance Publishing but my book was published through Rose Dog. I have had my few copies for a month and still have not been able to order on line because my code doesn't work and there has been one issue after another.

I was a first time writer and thought the book looks GREAT. The service is questionable so far.

I was hoping I could just order more books before Christmas. So far I get no answers to my request and no quote on the cost.

Dorrence Publishing Scam

Last year I've contracted Dorrence for publishing . The service of their production center is ***. One of the issues: last month I received my first check of royalties, turned out to be rejected by all local banks I kindly requested to enable PayPal. I guess this would take them 5 minutes to set up. But they doesn't bother because "it doesn't match their policy". I'm very disappointed I have never encountered any support. My book also looks like ***.This is a story about Dorrance Publishing and I want to tell other idiots don't invest your money with this and be careful about contracts with vanity scams take a look into these vanity scams because believe it or not they don't care about your dreams coming true; they just really want your money.just because they been around for 80 years or more doesn't make them honest.

Sales to Amazon

I need your organization to stop sales of my book "The Valley" as it is a very poor presentation. I cannot help but feel that if you continue to offer the book to Amazon, or anyone else, it will be detrimental to my other works. I have since republished through a different publisher and I ask that you stop selling the edition you have. If there is a question, please contact me at mike.kohler54@***.com. Thank you M. W. Kohler. P.S. Rosedog was the one to distribute the work. I am seriously worried that your edition, will be a disadvantage to my future works and again ask that you cease selling, or supplying this book to Amazon

Dorrence isn't going to pay any attention to anything written here. These scam companies just continue scamming. You paid this vanity scam publisher do you now not even have a way of contacting the vanity scam?
