They are crooks!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I published a book with them in 2008 -it now 2018 and they refused to give me a DIME!! Thye present false advertizement. They clame toself- publish your book but they make you paid for the editing, cover and making of the book. Then they take 70% of your retail roylties, charge you taxs from your net(if they ever give you one) then make you pay for shipping and handling. When they put their logo on your book it's not self -publishing! Every time a book sells you are promoting their company cause their brand is on you book and not yours!! When I called to get a check they stop taking my calls and terminated they email service. I had no way of getting in touch with them. They are crooks!! Crooks!! Crooks!! They even kept my PDF files wich is needed to edit and re-release my own novel. Debie Dawson handled my account and never sent me a check but roobbed over 5,0000 to publish the book and never send me a check after books were sold! If you want to hear from me, other people who have been robbed and want to filed a joint class contact me: TwenyOneHands@***.com # 1(71*)807-**** call me Mr. Williams. Go on line even to their site. My books is called: Window Without A View

Llumina Press Publishing Service Review
I was scared of 1500.00 to publish my book The Day She Left My World Fell Apart" That was over 4 years ago and I have only received 3.52 from my sales. They are selling all over the internet and amazon for 3 times the amount . I have never been contacted by this scamming company. Let's all get together and sue these people !!! Linda Sinclair

The Two Playful Spooks
I've been scammed for twelve hundred dollars by this company, I feel so horrible.they lead me with broken promises, reel me in then let me drown, I asked from time to time about my royalty checks, they paid me twice then the payments stopped, now my books are all over the internet and I'm not getting any payments. and this been going on for nine years or more. I kindly submitted a certified letter requesting that they take my book off of their sites. my request was granted two months later. I really feel that this company owes me, is it possible I can get some immediate help!

They stole my money and won't return any of it.
They stole my money and won't return any of it. Incompetent P.O.D. Could not produce my book as per our agreement. Very young inexperienced girls run the company in a fraudulent manner. They say the author comes first. Reality check shows it's all talk, no substance behind the talk. Author signs contract. Llumina Press never signed the contract for their side of the agreement, but said it's okay, don't worry. HA! Check around to find out, they are unusual in their lack of customer support. Others are nicer, faster, more cooperative and less costly. Also they don't give an accurate accounting for royalties.

Llumina Press-Lousy Quality, lousy service
I chose this company to publish my book because they promised that they were different from "vanity presses" in that they only published professional, well-edited books. One aspect of the publishing package was that they would edit the back cover text provided by the author. Because I am dyslexic, my spelling leaves a great deal to be desired, so this was an important feature of the package. I was horrified to learn that the book was released with a back cover containing multiple errors in spelling and grammar, things that were supposed to have been taken care of by a professional editor. One name was spelled three different ways on the cover alone! I later found out that the person responsible for editing back covers is the owner's mentally disabled (autistic) daughter! The interior text was sent to me to approve the editing. I was told that I could make any additions to the text that I wanted, and so I did. They did NOT tell me that no editor would ever look at the additions I made. Because of my dyslexia, I added errors, which were never edited. After spending thousands of dollars, I have had to pull my book from Llumina and take it to another publishing company to completely redo.

LLumina Press won't publish my book after 5 1/2 months
Since I am in Calif., 3 hours earlier than Fla., I have consistently replied to Llumina in the evening so they could have the response when the business opened the next morning. When they finally acknowledged it was not possible to provide my original and ongoing request for larger, wider spaced lines with wider letter spacing, and right justification without excessive hyphenation, I e-mailed explaining how to do that computer process. I have never been involved in the publishing business, but I spent weeks asking questions and doing research to find the answers. Thurs. night I e-mailed my offer to fix the book myself, since they were not able to accommodate my requests: "I am available for Llumina to hire me to do the formatting on my book. I have learned how to edit/format a 6x9 book with equal spacing, left and right justification, and no awkward hyphenating. Llumina would have to finish with the page naming and numbering aspect of the formatting process and your final preparations work for printing." I included a comparison between the Llumina process and the one I learned. The Publishers I contacted, were not willing to share their "secrets" with me, so while it's not perfect, it is much more professional than the current Page 65 in the proof book that I paid to have sent to me. Page 65 of the book shows 8, end of the line, hyphenated words. The built-in Microsoft Word free computer paragraph program I learned, eliminates that problem: According to the Publisher Standards Board: Among these misleading books publishing companies are: "¢ AuthorHouse "¢ E-BookTime "¢ Infinity Publishing "¢ iUniverse "¢ Llumina Press "¢ Magic Valley Publishers "¢ Tate Publishing Since Llumina is saying they can't provide the book in the agreed upon format, it's time to come to an agreement and stop this time wasting of the past 5 1/2 months! There is no way they could know what I received in e-mail and in postal mail. Therefore, what they think they sent to me is a non-issue. The only real issue at this time is to immediately refund my money or provide me with the agreed upon book and fulfillment services.
