Stolen Royalties (2016 to present)

I self-published my book: A Spiritual Dog "Bear" with them in October, 2016 and was never paid my Royalties. I am trying to find a way to remove my book from all websites and have legal actions with charges brought against Litfire-Amelia Publishing Company. I need to be paid all Royalties due since 10/15/2016. They need legally to be put in jail and charged with Grand Theft.

User's recommendation: Stay away from Litfire Amelia Publishing Company.

They are scammers.

They are selling my book I write and refuse to pay me royalties. They won't give me my copyrights signing my name illegally to other online sellers of books.

User's recommendation: Be careful tricky packages.

They scam me.

I plan to pursue this company and get everything they owe me. They took my book and is selling online everywhere collecting all my royalties. Please if you are considering this company my advice run, run, run! They have made it impossible to contact them and they have a address that is not where they are located. Sooner or later they will be dealt with , and then they were going to wish they had done the right thing. I pray every day they get what is coming to them. This disgusting publishing company need to go out of business. D

User's recommendation: Don't work with them they practice unfair tactics to steal your hardwork.

I want them to give me my copywrites to my book and stop selling it online and everywhere else. I want you to pay me for the years you had my book and not giving me royalties. Release my book to me like you promise.

Holding royalties, even after 3 years..

My books were published over 3 years ago... still no royalties?? Crazy?? And yet, I know quite a few people who have ordered my books! Litfire will no longer communicate with me. We should enforce Amazon, Barns and Noble, plus other booksellers to send the authors a quarterly statement of how many books were sold. By doing us a favor, we would know if our publishers ate being honest and sending us our correct royalty checks !!!!

User's recommendation: Run, run away from this company.

Royalties concern

First and foremost, Litfire and Amelia Publishing are the same company! They took my money, published my book, which is making them a profit! It has been 4 months since it has been published and no royalties. I have many friends that have bought my books, even including myself have bought several. They said they were getting all the royalties report together, it has been over a month! I call and no answer! I have email them so many times and no return email! They have ripped me off, I am so disgusted! I was ripped off by Tate publishing and now Litfire and Amelia Publishing! email

User's recommendation: Please be aware of this company.

A big ripoff this Litfire Publishing

My last royalty payment was on 02/09/19 for the last 2 quarters of 2018. Since, I have no heard on thing from them, even though I know about purchases. My calls are not returned, my e-mails are not answered. Lately, messages are not going through on their Website. It is also impossible to verify any sale that are made through Amazon and others. This is a scam!

User's recommendation: Avoid doing business with this compnay.

Why I am pissed

I cannot get my royalty checks. They said they pay through PayPay. I have an account with them. No money was ever sent to me through Pay Pal. I finally earned a royalty check for 4th qtr. 2019. I still have not received it.

User's recommendation: 0 stars.

Do not use these "self-publishing" crooks. They do not report all sales and are therefore screwing their authors.

Do not report sales of authors' books

Cut your loss before you get in too deep. I am nearly $60.000 spent on projects to promote sells of my book, but my wife will not allow me to spend another penny.

The Bookstore reports no sale each quarter, even on the $10.000 projects. The wife and I almost divorced over my continue push to get book sales. $60.000 GONE!!!

Purchased agreements recommended by Litfire in excess of$50,000 with no results.

Radio and TV interviews, Silver Screen, Book events...just to name a few. None to few sales. Company gets richer, and continue to recommend more plans. Many people are no longer with the company while my trust is gained by new staff agents.

Litfire Publishing called me around 5 months ago. Why the *** would any self publishing company do phone solicitation?

They claimed I contacted them before which I never did. Then they called me recently under the name GoToPublish. Fake names used by a phony company. Only in the United States could a company as dishonest and scammy as Litfire Publishing be legal.

They overcharge for everything too.

Save your money. This is as close to legalized fraud as u can get!!!

I agree with your comments concerning LitFire. They have charged me around $1500 US currency and have not sold one copy of my book in over one year since publication.

Writers Beware

The persons in charge of my book kept quitting, so I had three different Publishing Fulfillment Officers. They were nice, but they obviously didn't like their job. One quit after I had started editing my book. The person after her couldn't find the edited copy. So I had wasted my time editing. Then I had a medical emergency which led to the discovery of metastatic cancer. For a while I tried to get a hold of the last Publishing Fulfillment Officer, but she would not answer my emails. After I finished with chemo and radiation (which of course took months), I called Litfire many times. Not once did anyone answer the phone. They may be out of business. But in case they are still marketing, I want writers to know it is not safe to trust them!
