No Stars for these bastards. NONE!

Silver Ink Literary Agency - No Stars for these bastards. NONE!
They contacted me, naming the books with excellent reviews they wanted to represent and find mainstream publishers for. They claimed success, sending fake Letter Of Intent from HarperCollins and from Diverse Books.Took five years of work, of my life, my money. I paid for pro contract lawyer to ensure all was cosher. The contract signing date never arrived after being put back three times. Eventually it was impossible to get a response from my Agent there. None of the phone numbers worked. The company was impossible to get any information from. No doubt my email address and mobile number was flagged as, "Unhappy customer, bled for every possible dollar. Dump."

User's recommendation: Don't touch them. They're practised liars who will take your trust and every dollar you cannot afford. The worst is the time wasted as you go through the process of editing, rewriting and correcting, the added expenses such as Author US Tax break forms and anything they can devise. Three years of stress and hard work are wasted, leaving sleeplessness and self-recrimination for allowing such a thing to happen. Being left penniless is no fun either. I have lost all faith in humanity because of people like this. I will never again trust anyone to do business across the globe via the internet and email. I have uploaded a fake Letter Of Intent given me by Silver In. It promises payment for five novels, enough to pull me out of poverty. I pinned our future on that letter, leaving us in the hole to the bank for years to come.

Still not a word of a response from these bastards, despite multiple attempts to make any contact whatsoever. Angry enough to murder whoever is responsible for bankrupting me and wasting three years of my life.

Preferred solution
Fruition of promised purchases from the mainstream publishers named in Letters Of Content. If a deal cannot be made in selling my five books, a full refund of all I paid under false pretenses.
Like Page Turner Press and Media, Editas Press and Media and Silver Ink literary agents are a complete scam. I'm a self published author who was contacted by an Editas press literary agent about getting my book published by a traditional publishing company namely...

Sadly it seems I have falling for it Silver Literary and they are still in contact so maybe they can be caught and prosecuted. Feel so bad as it seems so legitimate. Les
