SBPRA - Giving credit where it is due!
LOVED working with this company. I had never been treated better. They were well priced and 100% professional. I feel it is a hybrid publisher, half self and half Publisher. They were kind and honest, and it was the best money ever spent. They are an unusual company. It is VERY difficult to trust any company because it seems like it is ALL a scam these days, but my book NOSES IN THE WIND: How To Create The Best Life For Your Dog and Make A Forever Home..was launched in November of 2022. They did EVERYTHING. Of course you can not expect them to Market beyond the kick off for that little money, but they are SO organized. Love them!!!

They charged me to publish my book, which they did and gave me a website to follow my book sales. According to the website I've never sold a single book worldwide. They refuse to communicate with me so there is nothing I can do. I have told you this before and you have emailed me asking if I've made any progress. When I try to reply to your email the postmaster tells me your email address is incorrect.

why don't you try to get their mailing address and send them a letter or if they are stealing from you, meaning, taking money from your book but not proving updates or a way to market your book, sue them!

I don't know why this person was pissed. I did figure out my royalties and sent the amount to St.

Jude for double the amount. The publisher is not responsible for making the donation. The royalty check is made out to me so I deposit it in the bank and write the check to St.

Jude. SBPRA is a competent publisher and I recommend them for any author.

I contacted you some time back about the above book and you have asked me if I have made any progress. When I try to reply to your emails they don't go. SBPRA refuse to acknowledge any attempts to contact them and still say they haven't sold a single book in over 6 months.

I wrote the above book and paid SBPRA to publish it, which they did at 15.95 dollars. That is overpriced for a novel of that size. However, I have been approached by other publishers who liked the book so obviously copies of the book have been sold. The website SBPRA gave me says that I haven't sold a single book at all. I've emailed SBPRA many times and they totally ignore me.

Roalty is to low

Out of a 21$ book I on receive a few cents. Not only does Amazon take 15% SBPRA charges over 9$ to make each book, which doesn't make sense if they make a print of each page, then they take their 75%, leaving the author with penny' , and even though I paid for marketing there was none that I could see. The hardest is you never get to talk to a real person, everything is handled through emails, which is hard to explain a problem through. I've known multiple people who have purchased my book through Amazon though I haven't received any payments for, I will not use this company again WESTBOW gives 100% royalties.
